It should come as news to no one that the pandemic broke global supply chains, and they remain in need of repair. Container ships are backed up waiting to unload. Shortages are causing massive delays. Capacity is limited, companies cannot find labor, nor can they find the drivers to transport the goods they do have. Add to that the threats of severe weather, cyber security concerns, a failing infrastructure, and lingering impacts of a worldwide pandemic. It is certainly an interesting time to be a supply chain professional. But with each of these threats comes opportunities. We’ll explore it all with industry insiders and thought leaders on "The Top 10 Supply Chain Threats” a new, 11-episode, podcast series from CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly.
Episode 7: Threat: Failure to Digitize supply chains

Dale Rogers, ON Semiconductor professor of business and director of the Frontier Economies Logistics Lab at Arizona State University, joins SCQ Managing Editor Diane Rand. He shares his thoughts on how companies can balance the risk of implementing new technologies and it going horribly wrong with the risk of not adding digital technologies and falling behind competitors.
