This new case study examines risk management at Jacket, where supplier delays and quality problems refocused executive management on the issue of reducing supply vulnerabilities. It reviews Jacket's fluid and gas control products and its fragmented markets, where business uncertainty and complexity are growing. Next, it compares potential strategies, drawing on other companies' experiences to identify both strengths and drawbacks. Focusing on realistic issues throughout, this case study offers exceptional value to both students and practitioners. Authors: Jury Gualandris and Matteo Kalchschmidt; both from Università degli studi di Bergamo.
