Leading in turbulent times webinar series: The strain of COVID-19

Keeping supply chains moving
March 2020

This webinar with Carlos Cordon, IMD Professor of Strategy and Supply Chain Management, appeared live on Friday 27 March, at 11am CET.

It is a challenging time for production – the world is in panic mode and many supply chains are faltering. They are either overwhelmed – think toilet paper producers – or closing down – like car factories. With gaping imbalances between supply and demand, how do we manage this extreme situation?

Professor Carlos Cordon teaches how to keep supply chains moving. He explores the lockdown process and how best to prepare for the resulting production environment, using examples of companies that succeeded in managing imbalances during times of crisis.
