Volatility Breeds Opportunity to Reconfigure Supply Chains for Growth

Manufacturing and Supply Chain Expert Lisa Anderson, MBA, CSCP, CLTD, president of LMA Consulting Group Inc., has published a Special Report – The Road Ahead: Business, Supply Chain & The World Order. LMA Consulting Group works with manufacturers and distributors on strategy and end-to-end supply chain transformation to maximize the customer experience and enable profitable, scalable, dramatic business growth.

“While the visible signs of supply chain chaos have dissipated, business volatility and disruptions remain high. With the world order in a state of flux, risk is high. Yet because everything is interconnected, companies have an opportunity to stay ahead of their ideal customers’ needs. They can do this by reconfiguring their supply chains, leveraging technology and attracting and continually developing talent to leapfrog their competitors to secure a lead position in their marketplace,” says Anderson.

The Road Ahead: Business, Supply Chain & The World Order is a special report that captures comments from trusted advisors and experts from various disciplines about what their most successful clients are doing and what companies should do to take advantage of opportunities in 2023 and beyond. “In talking with my colleagues, it became apparent that the same challenges, issues and opportunities resonate among business disciplines. Each discipline requires attention. Making required changes is not for the faint of heart. The opportunity in front of companies today is the greatest since the Great Depression,” she says.

The report includes insights from 27 trusted advisors and covers a wide variety of key topics impacting manufacturers, distributors, retail, and healthcare including:

  • Commercial relocation
  • Cyber
  • Geopolitical & natural resources risk
  • Human capital – Planning & scheduling, labor law compliance, talent
  • Insurance – Commercial
  • Logistics (airports, cargo, distribution, global supply chain, ports)
  • Marketing – Artificial intelligence & communication
  • Manufacturing – Nearshoring (Central America, Latin America, Mexico, etc.)
  • Manufacturing – Reshoring
  • Manufacturing – Offshoring (India)
  • Manufacturing – Talent
  • Supply Chain – Software, artificial intelligence, sourcing & architecture, mitigating risk, process & people
  • Technology – Artificial intelligence, infrastructure, ERP, the customer experience

From cybersecurity, logistics, insurance and talent acquisition to nearshoring, reshoring and friendshoring, the tasks are many, but the opportunity is significant. “The only question will be whether your company is ready to take advantage of the opportunities to grow profitably or if you’ll struggle for survival. I hope that our Special Report sheds light on these opportunities,” she says.
