How to Manage in a Post-COVID Supply Chain [WEBINAR]

April 16, 2020 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Every sector of the economy is struggling to understand how to continue given the impact of the Coronavirus on their business enterprises.  Workers are now communicating through remote conferencing services due to shelter-at-home orders, and anxiety levels are rising as the economic future remains uncertain.

In an effort to provide executives and leaders support during this period, the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative is holding a webinar featuring three industry experts who will contribute a number of different viewpoints on how to operate during the Coronavirus, as well as insights on how to plan ahead for the economic uncertainty during the remainder of 2020.



Robert Handfield, Ph.D., is the Executive Director of Supply Chain Resource Cooperative and Bank of America University Distinguished Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management in the Poole College of Management at NC State University. He has been working with the US Air Force, GovBuy, the Helena Covid19 Network, and other groups on how to mobilize a response to the chronic shortage of supplies in hospitals, and will provide insights into some of the current efforts that are on-going in the healthcare supply chain, including the likelihood of testing kits, anti-body treatments, and vaccine development, and share timelines for these activities.


Jason Schenker, MBA, MA, is the President of Prestige Economics and Chairman of The Futurist Institute. He is the author of 22 books, including “The Future After COVID“, which was released last week and provides perspectives on long-term changes, challenges, and opportunities that the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to hold, including for over a dozen different critical fields and industries. His next book, “Strategic Cost-Cutting After COVID: How to Improve Profitability in a Post-Pandemic World”, will be out April 20, 2020. Mr. Schenker will offer perspectives into the potential long-term changes, challenges, and opportunities the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have for over a dozen different critical fields and industries, including the future of work, education, healthcare, supply chain, and more.


Gene Klann, Ph.D., is a retired Lieutenant Colonel, and combat veteran with the US Army. He previously was a faculty member at the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) and US Army Command and General Staff College. Currently, he is the President of Disciplines of Leadership, LLC. Dr. Klann is the author of “Crisis Leadership: Using Military Lessons, Organizational Experiences, and the Power of Influence to Lessen the Impact of Chaos on the People You Lead“, and will discuss important lessons for leaders to consider during crises with an emphasis on communication.
