For over 70 years, supply chains have grown global and evermore complex – into a fragile construct, shaken to its core by recent incidents. Reconstructing global value chains will take decades – while the polycrisis world is set to stay for much longer than just the next years. Time to act on SC risk and resilience is now: a crucial competency to invest in under all circumstances. Historical SC negligence ends: we proclaim a new era of (re-)gaining strategic importance: a role shift from mere support into a value driver. Supply chain risk and resilience is key to this – we’ll show how.
