Extra Video: Webinar Recap with Carter McNabb & Shanaka Jayasinghe

GRA recently ran a webinar 'Australian Supply Chain Impact Assessment

In this video, GRA Partner Carter McNabb and GRA Director Shanaka Jayasinghe discuss the webinar and its outcomes.

Summary

  • In Australia the health trajectory has been well managed to date, but we expect a lag effect on the economy.
  • There is still much uncertainty, so effective scenario planning is now a mission critical capability. Australian organisations are not generally well positioned in this respect. The time to build on this capability is now.
  • Lean will be balanced with increased resilience in supply chains moving forward. Australian organisations need a clear understanding of the options and risk versus return trade-offs.
