Supply chains are viewed by many as the cause of these strains on resources, but if we are the cause – then we too can be the cure. New challenges require new solutions and by sharpening organization focus, tapping into workforce creativity and passion, and deepening ecosystem partnerships we can redefine purpose for truly sustainable profit and realize supply chain’s potential to be the cure.
