Supply chain risk affects firms in a multitude of ways. The detrimental results of failing to manage supply chain risk includes, but is not limited to, disruptions that lead to the inability of firms to meet customer requirements, increased costs due to holding excessive inventory, paying employee overtime and expediting orders, financial losses due to increases in commodity prices and unfavorable exchange rates, and tarnishing firm reputation due to poor performance. Although supply chain risk can detrimentally affect firms in many ways, there are approaches organizations can implement for identifying, assessing, and managing risk in order to foster resiliency. This work focuses on strategic sourcing approaches for identifying, assessing and managing supply chain risk. It provides readers with insight into strategic sourcing and risk management approaches for managing supply chain risk and attaining resilience and will appeal to researchers in supply chain management, sourcing, and procurement. George A. Zsidisin is the John W. Barriger III Professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, USA. His research focuses on how firms assess and manage risk associated with supply disruptions and price volatility in their supply chains.

She is Director of RiskMaster and LogiMaster at the University of Verona.
