Supply Chain- the new team sport: Can your facility make the cut?

While the pandemic showed the importance of our supply chain, it also served to spotlight its weak links. In order to make our supply chain more resilient and move up in the standings, we will review several components that are vital to success:
• Key team members and their roles
• Winning strategies to enhance your supply chain
• Tools to help you get ahead of the curve
This process must be understood and embraced throughout all levels of your organization. This presentation provides information relevant to your entire team.
