The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on global risk-management strategies. Many companies learned in 2020 that their supply chains weren’t prepared for a disruption of such massive scale. Now, they’re determined not to get caught short again.
Shortages in supply and disruptions in the logistics chain are a tale as old as time. And while there are few precedents in this period of uncertainty, the basics remain the same: By adopting guidance that pacesetters use to navigate other forms of disruption, you can confidently lead your supply chain through change, now and in the future.

The supply chain as we know it is evolving quickly. Plan, execute, and sense-and-respond processes are more often happening concurrently and continuously—spurring the transformation of the supply chain into a true digital ecosystem. The driving force of this evolution is the need for end-to-end visibility—to enable openness, connections, and collaboration across the value chain. This level of visibility empowers organizations to optimize operations, reduce costs, improve working capital, and increase supply chain velocity. A more resilient and agile supply chain can act as a strong competitive differentiator.
