Join us for these insights on global supply chains from Keith Willoughby.

Supply chains are used for the production, distribution and delivery of items. Supply chain management seeks opportunities to improve the value creation of activities required to transport products, store inventory, and satisfy customer demand. Efficient supply chains enable products to be available and accessible. The COVID pandemic – along with other global events – has certainly demonstrated the challenges created when product demand exceeds available supply, or when transportation availability is curtailed.

This presentation focuses on the important role supply chains play in Canada’s connection to the global economy. Practical insights are provided to illustrate the prominence of proper supply chain management.


About our speaker:

Born and raised in Melfort, SK, longtime friend of CIC Dr. Keith Willoughby is the Dean of the Edwards School of Business and a Professor in the Department of Finance & Management Science.

He teaches courses in supply chain management, quantitative methods, and business analytics. His research interests include health care process improvement, project logistics, public transportation systems, and sports analytics.

Despite suffering the elementary school horror of striking out playing T-ball, he regained his athletic composure by obtaining a hole-in-one in golf. He hopes to live long enough to see the Toronto Maple Leafs win a Stanley Cup.
