Disruption in the supply chain: The balance between resilience and operational efficiency
Due to global connectivity and complexity, Supply Chains came under pressure during the corona crisis. Factories closed and air traffic came to a standstill, creating challenges with suppliers. The demand for products fell or there was an exploding demand. In view of the possible second wave at the time, the question arose of how companies can increase the resilience of their supply chains. Or do they accept the risk? Where is the balance between efficiency and resilience and what role does digitalization play in anticipating future disruption in Supply Chains?
During this Virtual Round Table, Jeroen Both discussed the lessons he learned during the uncertain period due to the Coronavirus. He discussed the choices he is making now to ensure a more stable Supply Chain in the future in the event of similar disruptions to this one. Both the short- and long-term vision were discussed.
