Join us for “SUPPLY CHAIN RESILIENCE”, an online session, part of the LCL CONVERSATION SERIES

An interactive dialogue featuring: 

  • Professor Anne Lange, LCL/FDEF, University of Luxembourg
  • James B. Rice, Jr., Deputy Director – Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL), MIT
  • Professor Walid Klibi, Kedge Business School, Bordeaux, France
  • Kai Trepte, Research Affiliate – Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL), MIT

Modelling risks for complex supply networks is a challenge, in particular those ‘black swan’ events that are characterised by low probability but high impact. Nowadays, the first such situation that comes to mind is the COVID-19 pandemic. How did some companies and organisations, with more resilient supply chains, manage to prepare their supply networks well and resist the effects of the pandemic (and other events) more strongly than their direct competitors?

Are we entering a new playing field of management decisions? Will reduction of complexity in supply networks be sustainable in the long term, or will the waves move back to offshoring, internal supplier competition, and outsourcing?

 

 

Anne Lange is associate professor in Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the University of Luxembourg. Her research interests are in transportation, network analysis and supply chain risk management. With a focus on SCRM, her past research includes developing methodology to identify vulnerable entities in complex supply networks and delineating the role of network structure in propagating disruptions. She enjoys conducting research in cooperation with industry.
