MANAGEMENT DIALOG „The Future of Supply chain networks


Hardly anything moves our companies in times of disruptive waves more than the vulnerability of supply chains. It is no longer just about the stability of supply chains on supplier side, but increasingly also about a foreseeable drop in demand of increasing dimensions. Reflect with us the triggers that require resilience, thrusts that promote resilience, approaches to systematic screening and adaptation of the supply chain network, and consequences for behavior and realignment in our organizations. Note: The event takes place in German.
