Supply chains have never been normal: a playbook for success moving forward
Stop searching for a “new normal” in supply chain management. The truth is that supply chains have never been normal — they have always been defined by change and uncertainty. This is why “exception management” is part of every supply chain professional’s job description. Instead of waiting for a new normal to emerge, what companies need is a new playbook for success moving forward. In this presentation, industry analyst Adrian Gonzalez will share several key principles companies should include in their playbooks to help them navigate the road ahead, wherever it may lead.
