Supply chains in a post-pandemic world

Willy Shih

Professor, Harvard Business School


Friday 13 August 2021


Harvard Business School’s Professor Willy Shih explores how the Covid-19 pandemic has exposed serious challenges in modern global supply chains. Assumptions around supply chain design and complex interdependencies have led to a concentration of risk and loss of resilience. What might change as the world opens back up? What can the current chip shortage tell us about future trends?

Prof. Shih was joined in this discussion by Emeritus Professor Roy Green, Special Innovation Advisor at the University of Technology Sydney, and Chair of the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Hub and the Port of Newcastle. Emeritus Prof. Green has co-edited the forthcoming ‘Routledge Companion to Global Value Chains’. (Recorded 13 August 2021)
