MIT Sloan Management Review: Accelerating Supply Chain Scenario Planning

BU Questrom’s Nitin Joglekar recently published an article in MIT Sloan Management Review on adapting supply chains to react to times of increased need. The pandemic has shown the need to make slow-moving supply chains more efficient, and Nitin’s research uses data and partner collaboration to do so.

As organizations and their supply chain partners have turned to scenario planning to help them “see” actionable paths amid the pandemic, such planning has become faster, nearer term, more inclusive, and digital. Our field research has found that digital technologies, data, and collaboration with supply chain partners are central to this effort.
