Keynote: Supply Chains of Tomorrow – Resiliency and Responsibility
Speaker: Homero Escandón, President – ASCM San Diego Chapter
Wednesday September 14, 2022
Global events and crises in recent years have exposed vulnerabilities in modern horizontally integrated and highly globalized supply chains. Driver shortages, lack of container availability, clogged ports, and supply disruptions have created extensive backlogs across the global supply chain. Our planet continues to suffer from climate change and the impacts of industrialization.
The supply chain professional of tomorrow must be a champion for the responsible design & optimization of supply chains.
In this conversation, we explore these key questions:
1) What does the supply chain of tomorrow look like?
2) Will businesses move away from globalization?
3) Will organizations abandon just-in-time principles?
4) How will organizations look to build resiliency & amp; agility in their supply chains?
5) What strategic sourcing decisions must be considered?
6) What will it take to place the required amount of emphasis on eco-sustainability?
7) What are governments roles in designing global supply chains of the future?
