Critical link: Filling the global supply chain talent gap
Thanks to the growth of worldwide supplier networks, supply chains have expanded in size and complexity. One result: Managing them demands a multilayered skill set, one that blends fluencies in technology, logistics, data analysis, customs, and international law — as well as the critical ability to determine when suppliers might be cutting corners.
Demand for such specialists is growing. But the supply isn’t keeping up. On top of that, approximately 30 percent of today’s global supply chain industry talent base is nearing retirement age.
One outcome: Professionals with the right mix of expertise will have plenty of job options — and offers — to choose from.
