    Topic:  Risk-Based Decision Making for Supply Chains 

    Speaker -  Jane E Tierney  CPSM, CPSD, MBA, Green Belt 

    We live in an environment rife with volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. Navigating in these waters is not easy. Supply chain professionals know the pain and chaos that can come from a serious disruption – a missed delivery or part shortage, quality problem, or even a huge, unanticipated swell in demand. Drilling down to root cause of a disruption is essential, but reactive. Using risk-based decision making enables companies to take a more proactive approach, considering potential risks as part of every decision, and building prevention and risk mitigation into every aspect of the business.

    • Definition of a VUCA environment
    • Five domains of decision making
    • Four types of decision making

    Jane founded purple link in 2015, recognizing there’s a better way to obtain value and achieve results. Clients discover innovative ways to identify waste and risk that leak dollars from the supply chain and drain the bottom line. Through collaboration with stakeholders and suppliers, purple link’s tools and processes reduce cost and risk and sustain successes year-over-year.

    After earning a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Missouri Jane obtained her MBA from San Diego State.
