Events, Shocks, Trends and the Supply Chain

In this episode of the Interlinks podcast I am joined again by my colleagues from the Supply Chain Special Interest Group of the Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) to review some of the events and shocks that have impacted supply chains during 2022 and how these events sit within the context of the overarching long-term trends that are driving supply chain strategies such as demographics, technology, and the energy transition among others.

Shocks and events such as the war in Ukraine, the pandemic and Brexit, among other may feel like they have appeared out of nowhere, but these events are taking place within the context of overarching trends that are unmoved by these short-term shocks and events. This provides us with another perspective on how to react and devise successful supply chain strategies as we look to the future.

Joining me in this episode of the show to discuss all of this are :

  • Diane Garcia, president of Lorraine Consulting based in Phoenix Arizona
  • Lisa Anderson, president of LMA Consulting, joining us from the Los Angeles metro area in California.
