What are the impacts of crises on global supply chains, and how can you prepare for the next supply chain disruption?

To rise to the challenge of handling future supply chain disruption, procurement teams must learn the lessons from the past and apply them to become more agile and resilient.

Organisations that are able to respond to changes in their up- and down-stream supply chains and continue to deliver to their customers will overcome the difficulties from the Covid-19 crisis and the crises to come. Join our webinar on 25 November to learn what we know about handling supply chain disruption, and the best practice for building resilience into your procurement function.
