Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, some companies were already reconsidering their global manufacturing strategies because of the China Trade War. But the pandemic sparked a rush to reconsider everything about how supply chains should operate and respond to “black swan” events. As a result, global supply chains are being revamped leading to drastic operating architecture changes affecting manufacturing worldwide. Companies are seriously considering reshoring manufacturing.
We may scare you about what is yet to come – the next pandemic, the next trade war, and global climate changes. We will describe these “black swan” events, how we prepare, and how we will have to become adaptive for fast response to supply chain events. How will all of this affect manufacturing and distribution locations in America? These decisions just got much more complicated.
1. Planning for “Black Swan” events – how companies must become responsive and resilient
2. Understand the changes to global supply chain flows and how these will affect business locations
3. Learn how supply chains can turn crisis into opportunity through fast response, rapid retooling, and tracking demand
