September PDM Summary

Date: Wednesday, Sep 10th, 2014
Topic: Supply Chain Risk Management – Emerging Tools for the Four Spheres of Risk
Speaker: Gregory L. Schlegel, CPIM, CSP, Johah, Founder: The Supply Chain Risk Management Consortium

Forty-five people attended our first PDM of the year to hear Greg Schlegel speak about Risk Management. Greg is one of the founders/writers/developers of the APICS Risk Management certificate program.

Greg covered:

  • What is supply chain risk?
  • How do we manage risk?
  • How do make our supply chains more resilient?
  • What are some supply risk resources?

Our Brandywine Valley Chapter was proud to hear that this was the first official APICS Risk Management PDM that counts towards the APICS Risk Management Certificate (requirement RME1).

Join us next month on October 7 at the Delaware Technology Center to hear about the work that the Delaware BioScience Association is doing in the arenas of gene sequencing, Alzheimer’s research, bio-imaging and more.
