About The Event
COLLABORATION FROM THE LENS OF INSIDERS IN HUMANITARIAN AND COMMERCIAL SUPPLY CHAIN
An unpredictable commotion Covid-19 pandemic challenges the global supply chain sustainability. To mitigate accelerating chaos, experts suggest that stakeholders in the supply chain should emphasise collaboration aspects. On June 10th, CEL brought together experts in the fields of humanitarian and industrial supply chains to tea talk on this topic.
Participatory supply chains are not simple as said, even during pre-pandemic years, now become more troublesome but essential for stakeholders, to survive by working together or corrupt under Covid-19 impacts. Round discussion on the topic is triggered by questions on starting points of collaboration and initiatives to make it successful.
A list of actions normally is mountainous when disturbances take place. In a situation like that, quantified information on the updates of potential risks should be a reliable foundation for decision-makers. “Bad news early is better than bad news late” shared by speaker Barry Elliott. Authentic and event-based data is one key factor that needs to be shared among your community to foster connection.
Triggering actions dynamically in accordance with a real-time database of events is the next fundamental movement, thinking towards your customers both internal and external becomes even more valuable during disruptive events. Dr. Ruth emphasises the need of covering stakeholders within your defined scope of supply chains is valuable both in governmental humanitarian projects and commercial businesses.
Agreed among our guest speakers, trust is then discussed to be a key component of a successful supply chain collaboration. Creating a trusting relationship between parties is obviously not a few-day process since they must take various considerations into account. It can be shown by your visibility, which is explained by sticking to your commitments and ensuring accountability while working together.
Special thanks to the guest speakers Dr. Ruth Banomyong (PhD) (Dean, Thammasat Business School, Thailand), and Mr. Barry Elliott (Director, ABF1 Consulting) for delivering valuable and comprehensive insights about fundamental drives to achieve a proactive supply chain collaboration ecosystem.
Let’s stay strong and safe together by sharing what you can and stay tuned with the upcoming events at CEL.
