4. Be prepared for disruptions and embrace change. And I cannot stress this one enough

By connecting with suppliers and customers digitally, using data to drive decision-making, and creating a culture of openness and collaboration, businesses can tap into new efficiencies and opportunities for growth. In an ever-changing world, being prepared for disruptions and embracing change will also be critical to success.
The key to a supply network is the tight relationships you are creating making you stronger during crisis, being able to assess situations with your partners quickly and find solution as a block, instead of independently or selfishly, like it's currently being done.
This also means we collectively need to operate a big shift, understanding that priority is to build a more resilient and more interconnected supply network. Indeed, for years when things where good, most of the energy was spent into cutting costs. And we did that for a very longtime. Today, after the consequences of Covid-19, we understand we should spend our energy into building a stronger, more collaborative ecosystem that can react fast to disruptions.
