THE POWER OF RESILIENCE

How The Best Companies Manage The Unexpected

The interconnectedness of the global economy today means that unexpected events in one corner of the globe can ripple through the world’s supply chain and affect customers and businesses everywhere. Prof. Sheffi, in this lecture, will explain why modern vulnerabilities call for innovative processes and tools for creating and embedding corporate resilience and risk management.

Quoting case studies covered in his new book, “The Power of Resilience: How The Best Companies Manage The Unexpected”, Prof. Sheffi will explain the various approaches companies have taken to prepare for, cope with, and come out stronger following disruption to their business.
