The coronavirus pandemic has made the importance of practicing effective supply-chain risk management painfully evident. It’s hardly the first time that companies have encountered major supply-chain disruptions in recent years, but this one is especially harsh. Lessons must be learned. On this episode, we get perspectives on the crisis from three experts in supply-chain risk. Bill DeMartino, general manager of Riskmethods, details how the virus is affecting various parts of the supply chain. Pierre-François Thaler, co-chief executive officer of EcoVadis, talks about how it’s impacting his organization’s ability to monitor working conditions and human rights in overseas factories. And Jim Wetekamp, chief executive officer of Riskonnect, covers possible changes in consumer demand and buying patterns, now in and years to come. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
