In this webinar, Brian Gibson, a professor at Auburn University’s Harbert College of Business, will talk about how retail consumer preferences are altering the way that the supply chains that feed them work. If shifts in technology are any indication, B2B supply chains and demand patterns will start to emulate consumer ones going forward.
