The Future of Supply Chain Management

in a COVID World

Speaker

Keith Launchbury

CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, DDPP, DDLP  

 

Master Instructor, Demand Driven Institute

 

President

Keith Launchbury & Associates

 

PDM Synopsis

In this vastly different business environment, it is truly a question of the survival of the fittest, and there will be no time to waste in making sure that the entire supply chain is governed by fast, flexible product flow. Many companies will simply cease to exist if they do not adapt to the latest thinking about Intelligent Product Flow Networks driven by actual customer demand. The future belongs to those companies with

integrated and flexible supplier networks that are empowered by information and are capable of responding rapidly to any change in market or delivery conditions. During the presentation, Keith will explain how companies must adapt in order to remain viable in this new COVID-19 world.
