Don’t hold your breath waiting for global supply chains to return to some state of “normal” anytime soon.
One might argue that supply chains have never experienced anything approaching normal, given an endless stream of disasters and disruptions over the years. But these times, marked by COVID-19, war in Ukraine, rising inflation, port congestion and labor issues, do seem unprecedented. So it makes sense to survey supply chain executives and find out how they feel about the current state of affairs, as well as the near future. The survey was conducted by Carl Marks Advisors, in partnership with SupplyChainBrain, and on this episode we delve into the findings with the help of Peter Keogh, managing director of Carl Marks Advisors. We’ll learn how supply chain executive have been affected by the current turmoil, when they think that things will get better, how they plan (or hope) to survive in the meantime, and just what it means for a supply chain to be “nimble.” Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
