Mike Griswold is the Vice President of Research at Gartner, specializing in retail with a particular focus on forecasting and replenishment. He is responsible for Gartner’s annual Top 25 Supply Chain ranking and joins Supply Chain Now on a monthly basis to discuss the latest in retail supply chains from an analyst’s perspective.

Much of the country is either back to school or headed there soon – but what about our supply chains? If they had to pack their backpacks and start the school year off on the right foot, what would they do?

In this episode, Mike takes global supply chains ‘back to school’ with co-hosts Greg White and Scott Luton:

• Official recession designation or not, the best defense is a good offense

• Employee retention is already critical for supply chains, but it will only become more so as human-centric digital automation is adopted

• Cash management and inventory management are absolutely essential – and supply chain leaders need to work with finance to get to the head of the class
