Human resilience for Supply chain resilience

The webinar will explore how supply chain resilience depends, in fine, on human abilities and attitude.

Supply chain resilience defined as the ability to respond to unplanned events and sudden changes, can be achieved thanks to a diversity of tools methods and best practices. However, ultimately, it is the ability of humans to react to these changes that makes the difference. The webinar will share some key ideas and some practical industry examples that illustrates the effectiveness of human-centred approaches to managing disruptions.

This webinar delivered by Yann Teste from the Volvo AB Group and Hervé Legenvre from EIPM. Together they will explore the following topics:

  • What are the characteristics of highly resilient organisations?
  • What is the role of humans in navigating supply chain disruptions?
  • What type of human-centric strategies alongside traditional tools and methods can be employed to build resilience
  • What are practical examples from different industries that demonstrate the effectiveness of human-centred approaches.
