What is your supply management plan?
If you don’t have one, or it hasn’t been recently refreshed, that could be the biggest risk of all.  Other risks include but are not limited to: financial, physical, logistics, technological, localization, and geopolitical.  Which items should be addressed?  In what order? How? You’ll hear both academic and corporate perspectives and leave the session with a clear idea of how to get started.
