“Crafting a Supply Chain Strategy for Uncertain Future”

Formulating a supply chain strategy often involves making decisions about investing in capital-intensive assets—such as, factories, distribution centers, IT systems, etc.—that have long implementation times and long lives. Predicting the future environment reasonably accurately in which these assets operate can be quite difficult. In this webinar, we describe a method developed and applied by the researchers in the MIT Global SCALE Network for formulating Supply Chain Strategy using Scenario Planning. MISI’s Director of Research, Dr. Shardul Phadnis – one of the creators of this approach – will present the method and illustrate it using its application to one company.
