Supply Chain & Operations are the focus for value creation these days

The world is ever changing, supply chains and operations are facing challenges like never before. Events like Covid-19, new geopolitical frontiers with China and the invasion of Ukraine have led to increased freight costs, labor shortages and lower shipping capacity.

Inflation and recession further strained the system, leading companies to rethink their supply chain resilience and operating procedures.

To realize this, an organization needs the right leaders to build a firm operational foundation and guide the business through the right transformation while aiming for maximum value creation. However, finding the right person for the job is not always easy. Especially these days, hiring can be difficult and time-consuming.
