TCA Executive Leadership Series: Supply Chain Analytics

Tuesday, September 24, 2024

CEOs should understand the entire supply chain process from procurement of raw materials to the delivery of the final product to the customer. This visibility helps in identifying bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and areas for improvement. They should be aware of potential risks that could disrupt the supply chain, such as natural disasters, geopolitical issues, supplier bankruptcy, or unexpected demand fluctuations. Developing strategies to mitigate these risks is crucial for business continuity. This session will cover critical data and insights into the supply chain world.
