ABSTRACT
The key findings from the first phase of research into supply-chain vulnerabilities have been discussed. Recent events demonstrated and highlighted that supply-chain disruptions can have a major impact upon advanced, industrialized economies. This research uncovered numerous smaller scale incidents capable of creating wide-ranging and unforeseen disruption. On the one hand, contemporary developments in business thinking have, in many instances, reduced supply-chain vulnerability to everyday commercial supply-chain risks by improving their internal efficiency. Such an approach recognizes that the right 'Philosophy' for tackling supply-chain vulnerability depends on the culture, structure and business drivers dominant in an industry sector. The pilot study research proposes that supply-chain continuity and management should be approached in a systematic and holistic manner.
