Whilst the project is implemented, these results will be developed.
Best practice report & motivation video
Best practice report and motivation video of The expected work, regarding the supply chain risks from an SME perspective, is highly innovative and relevant for several reasons:
(1) So far, knowledge about specific supply chain risks is missing; in particular, in the context of digitalization and the related intensified inter-organizational data exchange.
(2) Secondly, the specific perspective on SMEs has received less attention from the research community; and thus, can be considered as an additional important aspect.
(3) As these risks act as a barrier for the digitalization of industry, it is highly important to establish a good information base for research, company practice and policymakers.
The desired 8-10 best practices of how to address supply chain risks, are highly from a research perspective; so far, But even more, these best practices are highly important from a managerial point of view.
Be prepared Training Package
The core of the training will be based on a gaming approach. The goal of the training package is to fill the knowledge gaps, regarding the management of supply chain risks (SCRs), originating from digital interactions. SMEs are often unaware of the actual risk dimensions, frequencies, and variations of such risks; therefore, they are exposed to detrimental consequences, in a rather unprepared way. Therefore, the activities around IO2 will prepare participants (the two target groups). In addition, they will both offer to raising awareness, and also behavioral training.
The Training will be consisted of 3 major components:
Practical Guidance Pack
This output will maximize the value of the project’s outcomes, by making the materials produced both available and usable by SMEs in Europe; and, also at the end of the project. The guidance will contain information, both on the kinds of awareness and education resources available, and the method of how to use them. For this objective, the guidance materials produced, will be based on the evidence, produced by the project consortium. In each country, the project partners will deploy the educational materials and the resources, available to a group of at least 45 employees of different SMEs.
