Harnessing the effectiveness of technology for productivity, growth and the supply chain will be critical as manufacturers reshape their organizations’ strategies and aim to become more resilient.
Resilient manufacturers are more than the newest technologies, they have closed the management gap and are strategic on creating highly skilled, high performing cultures, along with smart supply chains. Through proactive planning and positioning, as well as extensive instruction and other strategic implementation, a resilient organization can make better decisions.
