Presentation by Kobus van der Wath, Founder & CEO, Axis Group International for CIPS Africa Webinar
The Chartered Institute for Procurement and Supply (CIPS) Africa and Axis Group International hosted a webinar on 15 September 2021 on ‘A New World of Risk – Strategic Choices & Practical Considerations for Supply Chain Leaders During Times of Uncertainty’.
Kobus van der Wath, Founder and CEO, of Axis Group International, along with Gerrie de Jonge, Managing Director: Africa, Axis Group International, take stock of developments over the past year and a half and share perspectives on the shifts that have taken place in global supply chains and trade. How are the global exporter rankings changing – and which regions, countries and supply markets have been able to hold their ground or make gains during these uncertain times? Key changes and dynamics in the complex risk landscape for companies with globally integrated inbound and/or outbound supply chains will be explored. How to get the risk-radar right and what are the fundamental changes needed to future-proof supply chains?
They outlined a high-level framework for top-management strategic choices and imperatives in boardrooms, while also getting practical with implementation-level matters around risk management and getting global procurement & supply right in the year ahead.
