The Biggest Global Risks That Supply Chains Face Today

Who better to assess the most serious risks confronting global business today than one of the world's largest insurance companies?

The Biggest Global Risks That Supply Chains Face Today

Each year, a few weeks before the World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland, Zurich Insurance Group co-produces a report on global risk. The 2015 edition marks the tenth year of the report, which began by merely identifying risks, but now analyzes the connections between them, along with the "cascade effect" of such events as natural disasters, economic crises and geopolitical strife. The result is one of the most comprehensive references available for businesses and supply chains engaged in global commerce. On this episode, we speak with Linda Conrad, director of strategic business risk for Zurich, who reviews the conclusions of the report as it relates to both developed and developing countries. She also discusses why this year’s report marks a change in the list of top global risks. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.

Look for a new episode of the podcast, which can be downloaded or streamed, every Friday on the SupplyChainBrain website and iTunes.
