Our Speaker Professor Vinod Singhal will share with us on  Supply Chain Risks and Financial performance: Evidence from Demand-Supply.

This talk will present empirical evidence on the effect of supply chain risks on financial performance.  Financial performance is measured using measures related to shareholder value, share price volatility, and profitability.  It will compare and contrast the corporate performance effects of three different types of supply chain risks; supply chain disruptions, product introduction delays, and excess inventory.  The implications of these results on making the business case for supply chain initiatives and justifying investments in technologies and solutions that mitigate supply chain risks will be discussed.

All are welcome and registration is not required.
