Synopsis: Over the past decade organizations have faced relentless customer demand for better value at less cost, individual customization, greater choice, faster delivery, higher quality, exceptional service, and more recently ? increased environmental and social consciousness. The organization?s weapon of choice to address this increasing demand has been the supply chain. However, as the supply chain footprint changed (e.g. outsourcing, off-shoring and customer/vendor empowerment) so did the organization?s exposure to uncertainty. Organizations were taken by surprise since this exposure was unanticipated, complex and beyond their ability to manage. As customers become more demanding and change occurs at an even greater pace, supply chain risk continues to propagate like a parasite. Organizations and societies are at much greater risk of systemic failure because of the massive interdependency throughout global supply chains. The priority now is two-fold; play catch-up and address these massive gaps while deploying more intelligent and integrated strategies (i.e. social aware, instinctive, dynamic and predictive) for dealing with continuous change.

Single Point of Failure: The 10 Essential Laws of Supply Chain Risk Management uses analogies and dozens of case histories to describe the risk parasite that infects all supply chains while revealing methods to neutralize that parasite. The book addresses the questions: What are the "single points of failure"? How exposed are customers, investors, other stakeholders and ultimately the organization? What is the measurable impact (i.e. brand, financial, strategic, and non-compliance)? Who establishes the "risk paradigm"? How does the organization efficiently and effectively allocate precious resources - time, people, management attention, and capital? How is success measured? This book is both technically powerful and effectively realistic, based on today's complex global economy.

From the Back Cover: Praise for Single Point of Failure

"We are in a world where risk is becoming a more central issue for senior management and boards of directors. A fundamental area of risk is in the supply chain of the enterprise. Gary Lynch has brought together his years of experience to provide a comprehensive yet pragmatic approach to understanding and managing supply chain risk. His 'ten laws' provide a blueprint for the effective management of this very critical source of strategic risk."?David A. Nadler, Vice Chairman, Marsh & McLennan Companies

"Single Point of Failure is a must-read book for all executives who are navigating today's risk-rich space that requires them to predict, measure, manage, and tame uncertainty in real time. Lynch offers a unique blend of risk management business theory, macroeconomics considerations, and real-life, vividly described examples, creating unique learning moments and providing thought-provoking insights that, if applied, could ultimately create the difference between planned success or inadvertent failure."
?Francois Nader, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer, NPS Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

"With Single Point of Failure, Mr. Lynch brings supply chain risk to life and makes it accessible to all walks of businesspeople. It's a fast-paced book that crystallizes the key business issues with a rich blend of insight and humour! Essential reading for all levels of business managers!"?James Irwin, Senior Strategic Marketing Manager, Roche

"Lynch captures the dynamics of supply-change management in an effective and comprehensive manner ... identifying numerous risk factors that impact on reputational capital, and are organic and typically embedded within all organizations that face increased globalization and its associated uncertainties ... His suggested strategies provide invaluable guidance concerning how organizations can not only recognize leading indicators that may result in deteriorating profiles associated with quality service and overall corporate social responsibility, but also anticipate potential future mutations in the evolution of risk profiles associated with the supply chain, and implement remediation and ongoing sustainable best practices in proactively addressing and preventing against salient risk parasites."?Jess Boronico, PhD, Dean, School of Management, New York Institute of Technology
