China’s costly Zero Covid policies, and other major supply chain crises have shined a spotlight on the importance of supply chain resilience and the need to make it sustainable. The major crises of the last few years have caught many organizations by surprise, offering very little time to respond to the multiple ongoing disruptions in the global supply chain. The hard lesson learned by major organizations is the need to build sustainable resilience. This can be achieved by building trust with their suppliers, leveraging AI technologies to gain better visibility, identifying vulnerabilities within their supply chain, and speeding up organizational responsiveness.
