Extended Enterprise 2014: Managing risk in the world of 'VUCA' - volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity

The days of ‘self- contained’ business are over. Virtually all organisations, from start-ups to multi-nationals now rely on a complex and interconnected web of  suppliers,  services,  consultants,  energy providers, distributors and many more simply to do business. This ‘extended enterprise’ gives you efficiencies of scale and expertise but it also poses growing multiples of risk. If any part of your network faces unmanaged risk, this has consequences for your own business.
