The Association for Supply Chain Management has launched a new certificate for supply chain professionals focused on resilience.

The Supply Chain Resilience Certificate will confirm that those who have achieved it have been provided a comprehensive knowledge of the concepts, practices and trends related to organizational and strategic supply chain resilience.

“Resilience is like the superhero cape for supply chain professionals. It gives them the power to help their supply chains bounce back from disruptions, whether it’s a global pandemic, natural disaster or unexpected shift in demand,” said ASCM CEO Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE. “In a world where supply chain disruptions have become more frequent and unpredictable, the need for resilient supply chains is paramount.”

Resilience came in as the number seven item of top trends in supply chain for 2024, according to ASCM’s yearly list.

The association started studying resilience back in 2020 when it commissioned an Economist Intelligence Unit white paper, Supply Chain Resilience for an era of Turbulence. Based on a series of interviews with subject matter experts around the world, the paper found that more focus was needed on how companies and industries can take effective steps to build resilience into their supply chains, ASCM said.

The ASCM Resilience Certificate enables supply chain leaders to adapt and find solutions while ensuring the supply chain remains robust and efficient even in the face of challenges. Following completion of the courseware (six modules) and passing the exam, certificate earners will be able to:

• Integrate resilience into supply chain management

• Manage risk in supply chains

• Make data-driven decisions

• Strengthen supplier collaboration and relationships

• Prepare for potential disruptions using data and strategic planning
