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.
