Featured Guest: Nada Sanders

  • Jan 05, 2021

“We are stuck because we did not apply the basic issues of implementation in supply chain management, things that we have known for decades.”

Dr. Nada Sanders is Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University & the author of “Supply Chain Management: A Global Perspective.” She joins us at a critical juncture in the Covid19 pandemic to help us better understand how supply chains work, how to look for and resolve bottlenecks, and the importance of a unified standard approach built around the concept of “Reverse Scheduling”
