Facing an uncertain future, supply chain leaders have resilience top of mind. Disruptions and shortages have undermined just-in-time manufacturing, resulting in delivery delays, price increases and fewer sourcing options — showing just how vital resilient supply chains are for future success. However, building resilience can be an expensive undertaking at a time when many businesses are looking to cut costs. What should business leaders do?
Watch the webcast of Building Resilient Supply Chains in an Age of Uncertainty, moderated by John Ferguson of Economist Impact along with Matthew Pedersen, GEP vice president of consulting, and a panel of supply chain experts, for a discussion of what enterprises must do to ensure their supply chains are ready. Building on from the first in this webinar series — The Cost-Plus World of Supply Chains — the panel explores what resiliency means to today’s supply chain leaders.
