As.we.mentioned.in.Chapter 12,.as.the.concept.of.supply.chain.risk.man-agement.began.to.solidify.into.a.body.of.knowledge.and.then.courseware,.within. the. framework. of. an. enterprise-.wide. risk. management. approach.(ERM),.several.major.tenets.developed.into.a.set.of.questions-.of-.discovery.regarding.the.maturity.of.the.supply.chain..As.these.supply.chain.tenets.began.to.solidify,.a.mechanism.to.review,.evaluate,.and.position.a.compa-ny’s.maturity.in.supply.chain.excellence.and.design.took.shape.in.terms.of.a.“spider.diagram”.or.heat.map.profiling.a.company’s.supply.chain.matu-rity,.which.then.relates.implicitly.to.the.risk.associated.with.that.maturity..The.heat.map.is.a.set.of.about.100.questions-.of-.discovery.across.10.tenets.of. an. end-.to-.end. supply. chain. environment. A. graphical. illustration. of.the. heat. map. appeared. in. Chapter  2.. The. answers. to. these. questions-.of-.discovery.provide.a.first-.of-.a-kind.glimpse.into.a.company’s.supply.chain.risk..The.spider.diagram,.featured.in.Figure.A.1,.profiles.color-.coded.lev-els.of.risk.that.correspond.to.high,.medium,.and.low.risk.

The.heat.map.provides,.perhaps.for.the.first.time,.a.glimpse.into.a.com-pany’s.risk.within.their.entire.supply.chain..As.shown.in.Figure.A.1,.the.tenets. are. leader.ship,. balance. scorecards,. sales. and. operations. planning.(S&OP). processes,. IT. systems,. supply. chain. techniques,. demand. man-agement,. industry. practices,. manufacturing,. supply. base,. and. logistics..The.tool.is.an.awareness.technique.to.begin.the.dialogue.covering.supply.chain. risk.. This. figure. has. an. outer. ring. (a. red. ring. when. using. color-.coded.systems),.which.means.any.answer.outside.the.red.ring.equates.to.a. very. high. risk.. Any. answer. between. the. red. ring. and. the. yellow. ring.(again,.in.color-.coded.systems).equates.to.a.moderate.risk..And.any.result.inside. the. yellow. ring. implies. a. lower. risk.. We. placed. an. actual. set. of.

Appendix: The Supply Chain Risk Assessment Tool  •  303

scores. from. an. oil. and. gas. company. headquartered. in. Asia.. The. reason.the.tool.resonates.is.that.many.companies.still.have.a.tremendous.amount.of. suboptimization. within. organizational. silos. and. a. lack. of. supply.chain.visibility.

The.heat.map.tool.is.also.utilized.during.supply.chain.risk.assessment.engagements. with. companies.. The. tool. is. used. at. the. beginning. of. an.engagement. to. establish. an. agreed-.upon. enterprise. picture. of. the. com-pany’s. supply. chain. and. risks. through. questions-.of-.discovery. answered.by. leaders. from. various. disciplines.. Next,. a. detailed. risk. assessment. for.each.node.within.the.supply.chain.is.exercised.with.the.culmination.of.a.final.review.of.the.supply.chain.risks.using.the.heat.map.tool.

Walking thROugh the QueStiOnS- Of- diSCOVeRy

As. mentioned,. there. are. about. 100. questions. inside. the. tool.. The. ques-tions.are.indicative.of.supply.chain.best-.in-.class.practices.from.more.than.25 years.of.operational.executive.experience.and.15 years.of.executive.sup-ply.chain.consulting.around.the.globe..Our.basic.premise,.reinforced.by.many.research.organizations.and.top-.tier.consulting.companies,.is.that.as.the.supply.chain.becomes.more.mature,.risk.to.the.organization.is.dimin-ished..Remember,.risk.is.not.eliminated,.but.rather.reduced.

As.you.answer.the.questions,.the.tool.will.calculate.a.rating.within.the.spider.diagram.at.the.bottom.right.end.tab.of.the.spreadsheet..When.com-pleted,.the.user.will.have.a.full-.picture.image.of.inherent.risks.throughout.an. entire. supply. chain.. The. risk. spider. diagram. can. be. used. to. begin. or.continue.the.supply.chain.risk.dialogue.

hOW tO aCCeSS the tOOl

As.a.book.owner.and.professional.interested.in.SCRM,.you.will.have.access.to.the.supply.chain.risk.assessment.tool,.at.no.cost,.for.45 days.after.your.initial.download..To.access.the.tool.follow.the.instructions.in.Figure.A.2.
