  • The Importance of Supply Chain Partner Relationships

    The awareness of the importance of international supply chains has grown in recent years, not just among the business fraternity, but more widely in the media, among politicians and ordinary citizens as well. Because of the multiple crises that we have endured such as COVID, Brexit, War in Ukraine and geopolitical tensions with China people now understand much better that it is the correct functioning of these complex supply chains that keeps the show on the road.However, what may people may still not fully appreciate is just how many supply chain partners are involved in bringing even a cup of coffee to their breakfast table and how the correct functioning of these supply chains depends fundamentally of the quality of the relationships between these myriad supply chain partners - producers, buyers, processors, distributors, retailers and logistics service providers.In this conversation with my colleagues Lisa Anderson and Elizabeth Warren from the Supply Chain Special Interest Group of the Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) we explore this fascinating field of supply chain relationships and just how essential they are for the correct functioning of our modern economy.
  • Life After Globalisation

    In this episode of Interlinks, I explore how the world is fragmenting geo-politically in the 2020s in quite surprising ways, and the fact that many businesses have not quite twigged the implications of this reversal in globalisation for the design and operation of the international supply chains that they depend upon to compete.I delve further into what "life after globalisation" might look like and how companies should be equipping themselves to deal with this if they hope to continue to thrive and prosper in that world. In many cases, the supply chains that we built over the last thirty years in the period of peace, stability, and expanding globalisation that say its heyday between 1990 and 2010 will not serve us so well in the future. We are going to have to dramatically reconfigure our supply chains for security, redundancy, agility, and resilience looking to the future.
