Trying to predict demand or supply capabilities in a time of economic crisis “is like trying to catch a falling, disease-infected knife — in the dark.”
Those are the words of Ross Waetzman, director of corporate recovery at Gavin/Solmonese, which specializes in advising on business restructuring. As our guest on today’s show, he’ll talk about which companies are best prepared to weather the economic storm caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and which ones are at greatest risk. We’ll learn about a “playbook” that lays out the phases of recovery, and what companies can expect at each one. We’ll speculate about what that recovery might look like, and learn of some of the signs that indicate it might be on the way. Finally, we’ll discuss whether this latest global disaster will provide companies with valuable lessons about how to survive the next one — or whether, as we’ve seen in the past, they just don’t seem to learn. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
