Podcast Episode 21: Harshad Kanvinde on Best Practices for Improving Supply Chain Agility
Supply chain agility is about building an integrative capability across people, processes, technology, and leadership that enables you to quickly sense and analyze potential disruption and variations from plans.
It’s important to approach supply chain agility dynamically across every part of your organization because different products, segments, and business units have response expectations that vary.
