Weatherhead School of Management presents a complimentary webinar on the most relevant supply-chain issues by Mike Goulder, Adjunct Lecturer, and former McKinsey Partner.
For decades, supply chain management (SCM) has been quietly growing in importance as companies built increasingly complex and interconnected supply chains. However, the Covid-19 epidemic has exposed underlying fragility in many supply chains as various industries ranging from consumer goods to pharmaceuticals have experienced both demand and supply shocks. This crisis is further complicated by a host of changes to trade practices such as new tariffs, Brexit, NAFTA renegotiations, etc. Despite all this chaos, or perhaps because of it, this is an incredibly exciting time to be a supply chain practitioner. Why? Because companies face enormous SCM challenges and therefore are demanding stronger Supply Chain expertise as they prepare to reconfigure their operations to deal with current threats and to prepare for future competitive opportunities. In this webinar, we will examine several of the key trends impacting the practice of supply chain and discuss how the MSM-Operations Research & Supply Chain program at Case Western Reserve University can help position you to lead the future of SCM practice.
