Disruptions – caused by natural disasters or unexpected events – are occurring with increasing frequency. Their disastrous impact can affect society by lives lost, displacements, and financial cost; and on corporate supply chains by shortages, shipments delays, customer dissatisfaction, and revenue losses. 

Private sector and humanitarian disaster relief agencies have the common goal of being better prepared for responding effectively when disruptions strike. Companies with resilient supply chains can turn a disruption into an advantage. Well prepared disaster relief organizations can make a real difference in people’s lives.

This one-day seminar, held Sept 8, 2005 on the campus of Stanford University, featured speakers from academia and both the private sector and global humanitarian organizations to share their knowledge, experiences, lessons and leverage each other's best practices and principles. Seminar sessions highlighted the importance of agility, proactive planning, visibility, partnerships and performance management.
Sponsored by Fritz Institute, M.I.T. and Stanford University.
If you simply give money, it is one thing to one organization. If you give services or create technology, this can be replicated by every other humanitarian aid organization. This means you get leverage and the result factor is bigger - Lynn Fritz
