The Domino Effect: Everything Affects Everything



This article shows how vulnerable every company is on its suppliers. If they are not all compliant, then what happens to your company?

Now think about a company like an automobile manufacturer, which has in the range of 15,000 suppliers.

Not only must reach supplier have made its repair, tested it, and verified it, all of the repairs must be consistent with the main company's repair.

Multiply this coordination problem across the entire world. We live in an integrated world trade system. It keeps us alive, literally. It keeps each of us employed.

How vulnerable is your employer? You have only months to find out.

This assumes that the banks stay open. Should you assume this? Why?
