To survive in the long run, you need to be flexible, have the right technology and a diversified supply chain. How prepared are you?
A recent forecast suggests that the Canadian GDP is expected to fall by 10 percent this year and manufacturing output could fall by up to 13 percent. The pandemic has exposed huge vulnerabilities in manufacturing operations. But these are not new. Lack of digitalization and the reliance on manual processes adversely impacted the ability and speed at which manufacturers have been able to respond.
When will the next crisis take place? And there will be one – floods, cybercrime, another epidemic. It’s not a matter of “if” it will happen but “when”. How prepared are you for the new normal where workforce is remote, supply chains are disrupted and demand fluctuates?
