With recent events such as the Suez Canal, the fire at the port in Shanghai, Covid-19 pandemic and the current war in Ukraine, supply chain risks have been heightened. The struggle when transporting goods has amplified due to the rising oil and gas prices, increasing transport costs and changing trading regulations. Everyone needs a plan.
PlanB Consulting’s Supply Chain Continuity Management training can help your organisation prepare for, respond to and recover from these supply chain risks that your business may be facing.
This training course is designed to support business continuity within your supply chain. All organisations, whether they are large or small, are all dependent on their suppliers, outsourced operations and utilities. The Supply Chain Business Continuity training will help to identify the supply chain risks and how to mitigate them properly, thus making your organisation more resilient. The course considers the requirements of PD25222 guidance on supply chain continuity.
Whilst being highly interactive and bespoke to your company and industry requirements, your supply chain management training will follow and address the following topics:
- Introduction to Business Continuity in the supply chain and discussion of case studies.
- The scope of Business Continuity in the supply chain
- Identification of risks and modelling the supply chain.
- Mitigating risks in the supply chain.
- Cloud computing and IT issues.
- Identification of key suppliers.
- Next steps

PlanB Consulting provided a full Business Continuity roll- out, including a business impact analysis and the development of BC plans for this organisation, as well as BC training for key members of staff.
PlanB Consulting worked closely with the Procurement department to strengthen the resilience of their supply chain based primarily in China, and for the risks to be highlighted and escalated as necessary.
Following the success of the initial project, PlanB Consulting was further engaged to bring four new sites into the scope of the Business Continuity Management System. This ongoing project also involves working towards ISO 22301 certification for the entire organisation.
