About the Event:

Over the past year, global disruptions have continued to roil the world’s sources of supply, from increasingly severe and frequent natural disasters to geopolitical upheavals, supply chains are facing great pressure to build more resilient networks.  But adapting to new ways of working, boosting inventories, and ramping digital and risk-management capabilities aren’t enough to ensure resiliency.  Good supply chain management hinges on being able to respond quickly to operational disruptions and having a flexible contingency plan in place to act fast, and respond even faster.
