Managing Supply Chain Disruption and Business Continuity During Crises

COVID-19 has been a shock to the global economy. Businesses are rapidly adjusting to the changing needs of their employees, customers, and suppliers while navigating new financial and operational challenges.

As companies are faced with these new sets of priorities and challenges, technological innovations, such as machine learning and predictive analytics, have become essential to ensure business continuity. Business leaders must act quickly to address immediate supply-chain resilience issues and build an effective growth plan for the future.

  • What are some of the hurdles and challenges that business leaders are facing as a direct result of the global pandemic?
  • What measures are companies implementing to overcome these challenges
  • What long-term and short-term impacts will the outbreak have on supply chain & logistics?
