The Smart Cube Co-Founder Shares Supply Chain Risk Expertise in New Book


LONDON, May 26, 2021 — The Smart Cube, a global provider of strategic research and analytics solutions, today announced the release of a new book, “Risk and Your Supply Chain: Preparing for the Next Global Crisis,” authored by Co-Founder Omer Abdullah and Vice President Subash Chandar. The book re-examines the fundamentals of risk management through the lens of today’s complex, global supply chains, sharing valuable lessons and insights from two decades of crisis management to help prepare for whatever tomorrow brings.

“From natural disasters and geopolitical shifts, to climate change and unprecedented pandemics, global crisis events are becoming more frequent — and our supply chains are more exposed to them than ever,” said Omer Abdullah, Co-Founder of The Smart Cube. “We wrote this book to help procurement and supply chain leaders understand practical ways to safeguard against these unpredictable and damaging events.”

Over the past 12 months, The Smart Cube has reported unprecedented demand for its supplier risk analysis as companies deal with massive global supply chain disruptions and seek to better understand their risk exposures. The global pandemic has illuminated many critical issues and forced companies to rethink how they evaluate their end-to-end supply chain and all of the suppliers they ultimately rely on.

Abdullah and Chandar’s book details examples of some of the most prolific crises in history, examining lessons learned and offering tangible insights for navigating future events.

“Risk and Your Supply Chain: Preparing for the Next Global Crisis” is now available in paperback, audiobook and e-book format. Visit to obtain your copy today.
