A Wall Street Journal article posted on March 18th, 2021 was titled: “Everywhere You Look the Supply Chain is a Mess.”  Then on March 23rd, the vessel Ever Given got stuck in the Suez Canal, a vital shipping passage. Extreme weather and backups in major U.S. ports have exacerbated supply chain issues. After months-long snarls in the global supply chain, the U.S. faces shortages of toilet paper, coffee, and furniture.   How are global supply chain issues impacting your business? Join David Jerrett for a conversation about building resiliency in supply chains. We’ll discuss:
  • What supply chain myths were exposed in the 2020 pandemic?  What have we learned?
  • What are the consequences of inaction/status quo?
  • How do we need to think about resiliency in supply chains?
  • What can your business start doing to build resiliency in your supply chain?
  • How UW-Green Bay’s Supply Chain Management certificate can benefit you and your team.
