The pandemic uncovered some critical supply chain vulnerabilities around the world. As the vaccine gains traction and life begins to look a little more "normal" there is a sense of anticipation. However, it seems we are in short supply in a number of areas. The Bounce Back Begins is a great way to think this stage of the recovery as there will surely be ups and downs. Right now, shortages are popping up in a number of areas – some expected, some not. Here’s a list of a few items: Microchips, chicken, lumber, gas, steel, metals, plastic, chlorine, ketchup packets, etc.

Karin and team talk about how far we come on a few important themes around Digital Supply Chain and Procurement transformations:

o Can we recalibrate to reduce risk exposure?

o Are we seeing proof that leveraging advances in technology is accelerating response times?

o Are we gaining agility, resilience and better business continuity planning?

o Will we emerge from the pandemic stronger and with more resilient supply chains?
