Fuelled by digitisation and global disruption, supply chains have changed in recent years at a pace and intensity that many organisations have never experienced before. The need to source products from across the globe – and move them faster while reducing costs – has increased levels of complexity and risk, while also making it harder to respond to sudden disruption.
The COVID-19 pandemic, the ‘Pingdemic’ in the UK and devastating floods in Central Europe are just a few examples of recent disruptions that have led supply-chain leaders to realise that even low-probability events can become a reality and have a significant impact on their operations.
Following these unprecedented events, many organisations are now making supply-chain resilience a priority. Join this Supply Management Insider webinar, produced in partnership with Coupa, as we discuss how organisations that adopt new technologies and the practice of continuous design, can reduce risk, improve resilience and turn their supply-chain challenges into a competitive advantage.
