Corporations, government, and non-profit organizations have faced numerous supply chain disruptions and related challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Supply chains in almost every industry have been disrupted, including food, consumer staples, and medical equipment, adversely impacting consumers, hospitals, etc. around the world. Some supply chain challenges have been managed effectively while others could have been managed better. In this talk, Dr. Rajagopalan will discuss why these supply chain challenges arise and what organizations can do to both minimize potential supply chain disruptions and mitigate the impact of such disruptions. He will describe fundamental supply chain principles that can be deployed to effectively manage supply chains. He will also illustrate the application of these principles with examples such as the distribution of medical equipment and supplies, vaccines, etc.
