Weathering any storm: building a resilient supply chain

10th December 2020 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST | 1 hour
How are you adapting to disruption and building a more resilient and intelligent supply chain?

Always the core of the organization, but rarely in the spotlight, recent events have brought the supply chain to the forefront. And if yours isn’t top of mind at the highest levels of your organization, you’re behind.

Supply chains are being pushed to the limit, delivering not just the world’s niceties, but necessities. The need for resiliency to take on any challenge – be it natural disasters, political and economic uncertainty, trade barriers, increased competition, global operations, or public health crises – has never been more immediate. The organizations that are best fit for battle are investing in the resiliency of their supply chain networks.

During this webinar we’ll discuss:

  • How to break down siloes, eliminate redundancies, and cultivate collaboration with end-to-end visibility across your supply chain network.
  • How to plan for volatility, build resiliency and seize opportunities with the agility required to handle whatever comes your way.
  • How to leverage AI, machine learning and prescriptive automation to maximize efficiency and eradicate wated time, resources and talent.

Join guest speakers Kai Trepte, Research Scientist, MIT, Jim Rice, Deputy Director, Center for Transportation & Logistics, MIT, Jolyon Austin, Partner, EY and Duncan Klett, Co-founder & Fellow, Kinaxis as we discover how leading organizations are digitizing their supply chain operations with smart technology and service solutions.
