In our connected global economy, supply chain disruptions caused by things like economic downturns, geopolitical shifts, and health pandemics have an immediate impact on our businesses’ and suppliers' day-to-day operations. These once-in-a-decade black swan events are predictably unpredictable, but forward-thinking leaders can help strengthen their businesses and their suppliers' businesses during difficult times. As President Harry S. Truman said, “progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.” During this webinar we'll discuss proven supplier risk management strategies, tactics and tools for maintaining supply in good and bad economic times so you can move forward with confidence no matter what the future holds.
