The COVID-19 global pandemic resulted in a paradigm shift in Supply Chains and is bound to lead to changes in Operations Management. It was a rare “what if” scenario that not everyone in the industry was prepared for. Just as a Phoenix rises from its ashes, global supply chains will also rethink, revamp and reboot their strategy and adopt technologically advanced tools and models. Tattv 2021 provided clarity about what these strategies and changes will look like and what they will mean in the long run. It also initiated a dialogue between leading industry experts to help operations specialists keep track of changes in technology, methodology and economy pertaining to the field.
