    The management of risk has become so “Risky” in the past few years that companies are now considering collaborating with their competitors in areas of mutual benefit while still competing head-on with them for a profit. COOpetition is defined as collaboration between competing companies to achieve a common goal. To mitigate risk, companies are learning to combine the benefits of cooperation and competition, while minimizing the challenges to get ahead. In COOpetition between companies, Unity provides new opportunities.

    The Center for Supply Chain at Lehigh University has been publishing a Lehigh Risk Management Index (LRMI) that looks at the ten categories of Supply Chain Risk and how they have changed over the last three years. Noticing trends across different risk categories help managers become better prepared, especially during turbulent business environments. Collaboration across companies and competitors helps to reduce overall risk. This presentation will provide an overview of SC risk and how best to manage it through specific Collaboration techniques as a business strategy involving COOpetition that can be applied in any company going forward.


    1) How has supply chain risk changed over the last 3 years?

    2) What factors are critical for successful Collaboration with your Competitor?

    3) How can companies cooperate & compete with each other at the same time to reduce risk & make a profit?
