The primary drivers of supply chain (SC) design decisions historically focused on optimizing cost efficiencies and service levels. While that was an effective decision-making approach when business remained stable, the onset of a global pandemic challenged that paradigm and brought the fragility of the supply chain to the surface. In today’s environment companies also seek to mitigate SC risk while providing agility as demand patterns suddenly shift.
Join Coupa and The Hackett Group, in this session, we will discuss:
- Why resilient SC would enable organizations to survive and even thrive in turbulent times
- How to adopt a “wargaming” strategy mindset that details risk awareness and defines appropriate responses to a host of potential disruptions
- How best practices can ensure the appropriate optionality exists in SC
- How design decisions enable the SC to remain relevant to internal and external stakeholders and customers
