The Corona-crisis is showing in a painful way how vulnerable business in general and Supply Chains in particular are to external pressures. Although no one has the perfect crystal ball, it seems obvious that preparation and scenario thinking is key. Two Teaching Cases have now been published which have such preparations and scenario thinking at the heart of the matter.
At the heart of the cases we find the virtual company “The Fresh Connection” (yes, the company that also appears in my book “Mastering the Supply Chain”) and the Board is challenged to come up with useful approaches for moving the company further during Covid-times.
The first case focuses on ‘Risk Management’, from a short as well as medium to long term perspective. The second case is centered around ‘The New Normal’ and what that may look like.
