Creating supply chain resilience using data science and new ecosystems—June 19

Supply chains are highly sophisticated and can create a competitive advantage. But, particularly during periods of disruption, supply chains can be increasingly vulnerable—with more opportunities for failure and less margin of error for absorbing delays and disruptions. Now is an important time for oil and gas operators to dive deep into their supply chains to gain better visibility, identify weaknesses and opportunities, and create a plan to sustain healthy, thriving operations.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn opportunities to leverage technology to identify and mitigate supply chain risks
  • Hear potential recovery scenarios for the next 18 months and how your business could be impacted
  • Learn how to develop and execute a plan to recover from unanticipated supply chain disruptions
