When the recession ends, Will your supply chain be ready? is a virtual conference being conducted by Logistics Management and Supply Chain Management Review.
In my natural bearishness, I read the title as If the recession ends, will your supply chain be ready? Heh!! Critical words – If, when and it should be in that order. As you can readily observer, “When” is a rather optimistic frame of mind in this context and “If” is dramatically pessimistic. I have no doubts that this recession will end but I am of the opinion that it is very well possible that when it ends, we’ll begin another one which we might or will recognize in hindsight.
But in the meantime, let’s get positive.
