"Managing the supply Chain in troubled times"
"Managing the supply Chain in troubled times: Responding to heightened risk from global financial and operational restructuring" by Dr. Sandor Boyson, Research Professor, Co-Director, Supply Chain Management Center Logistics, Business and Public Policy Dept. Robert H. Smith School of Business
Globalization, driven in part by the rapid development of the internet, has led to significant global outsourcing, relying heavily on partnership. While this business model has driven cost efficiencies and operational flexibility across global enterprises, it has also recently led to a heightened perception of eroded strategic command and a loss of network coherence.
Over the last few years, we have witnessed significant disruptions to the global supply chains caused by 9/11, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), the Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, soaring gas prices, and now, the looming financial crisis. Executives are re-thinking the strategies for their global supply chains, such as better risk management through increased strategic command. You can join Sandor Boyson at CERAM Business School to discuss the supply chain strategies needed to stay in pace with the dynamic global environment, supply chain risk and the global financial crisis.
