Supply Chain Management

Helping you understand and manage your supply chain exposure

Supply chains have become more complex and reach across the globe. Businesses need to understand the resilience of both their supplies and suppliers to ensure they can provide the product or services expected. Finding weaknesses and acting upon them can help safeguard their customer base, business continuity and ultimately their market position.

Supplier Resilience Assessment


Horizonscan has developed a Supplier Resilience Assessment process and an associated ‘improvement toolkit’ to help you better understand the resilience of your supply chain.

The process involves a simple survey questionnaire that can be distributed to your suppliers for them to carry out a guided self-assessment. This will provide an overall resilience score, but also dive deeper into specific areas of functional resilience (such as Crisis Management, Continuity Planning and Crisis Communications). The results from the survey can also direct suppliers to the ‘improvement toolkit’ with resources that can include online training, guidance documents, best practice, support forums and validation.
