“The biggest risk to business continuity is ignoring the risk itself and not recognising that change is inevitable.”
Professor Omera Khan
New Thinking in Logistics and Supply Chain
“Omera’s insight and expertise in the areas of Supply Chain Management and Supply Chain Risk were a valuable resource. Her style of supervision was as inspiring as it was empowering, and her engagement in the research during and after the thesis was very positive. Working with her on this project was a rewarding experience both professionally and personally. Her lectures were very engaging and her ability to enrich such a theoretical course with so much interactivity is a characteristic I highly appreciate.”

How can I help your organisation?
Supply Chain Risk Management
Managing supply chain risks, rather than simply managing supply chains, is a more accurate phrase in today’s highly turbulent and uncertain world. Recognising and mitigating the impact of risks to the supply chain is significant to ensuring business success. Omera assists companies in thinking both strategically and operationally to proactively manage risks in the supply chain.
With the UK’s departure from the EU on the horizon, Omera highlights parallels in the corporate transformation process and valuable lessons to be gained from business.
Cyber Risk and Resilience
With recent and unprecedented global cuber attacks and further imminent threats, Omera’s work offers an explanation of why current cuber risk assessment methods are insufficient and provides an agenda for both academia and practice.
The development of new technologies such as 3D printing is causing significant disruption to well-established supply chain models. Omera provides insights and answers to future areas and issues of disruption.
Product Design and Supply Chain Alignment
Process alignment in the value chain enables companies to be more responsive and adaptable to changes both on the supply and demand side. Omera Guides organisations through simple frameworks and approaches to improve process alignment and enables them to recognise that the ‘supply chain begins on the drawing board’.
Sustainability and Environment
An ever-increasing concern for the plant and in particular global warming presents a growing area for attention. Omera’s work sets out how integration of product design can yield significant sustainability and environmental, as well as bottom-line benefits.
Volatility, sustainability and complexity are all putting enormous strains on the supply chain. Omera explores how business leaders can mitigate risks, use real-time information to embrace consumer demands and create a resilient supply chain.
Responsiveness and Customisation
Improved responsiveness and higher levels of customisation are prerequisites for success in a volatile market place. Omera has helped many companies in the textile and fashion industry to improve their end-to-end supply chain management and achieve higher levels of performance and success.
Handbook For Supply Chain Risk Management
The Handbook for Supply Chain Risk Management offers the first comprehensive collection of diverse practices executives and practitioners in most any industry can adopt to proactively manage supply chain risks and improve their overall business performance.
Product Design and The Supply Chain
Omera’s latest book, Product Design and the Supply Chain contains fascinating content applicable to industry. It is full of useful and insightful real-life cases and examples. The author has collaborated for case studies with key figures in industry, such as Egil Moller Nielsen, former Group-Vice President for Global Distribution and Logistics at LEGO.
