About Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council (SCRLC)
The Supply Chain Risk Leadership Council (SCRLC) was established in 2006. Over this time period, supply chain risk has increased in visibility and importance among supply chain practitioners, business leaders, industry analysts and the media. This council anticipated the rise of supply chain risk as a new supply chain pain point. With the spread of globalization and the increasing recognition of the flat world we live in, risks in the supply chain have multiplied. We were concerned about the lack of accompanying processes, systems and tools. The council includes leading companies representing a broad spectrum of industries that handled all kinds of supply chain risks. Together, we have discussed, brainstormed and developed a core set of principles and practices that have established SCRLC as the premier thought leader for supply chain risk.
