Supply Chain Resilience

This year’s edition of the Global Educator Challenge is all about Supply Chain Resilience.

Teams who join the challenge this year will face a specific setup in which they have to manage a supply chain in a way that it is prepared for the unexpected. In other words: Can you mitigate black swans under time pressure, be the fastest to recover and get back to a stable situation?

We don’t want to give away too much… register now for the Global Educator Challenge. Find out what exactly a resilient supply chain is all about!

May the best team win!
