June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment from a fireside chat on the expo main stage, Bob Evans sat down with Luyi Yang, Ph.D. and assistant professor at U.C. Berkeley, for a discussion on refining supply chain management for business and tech leaders.
00:16 — Cloud Wars Founder Bob Evans asks professor Yang for his expert opinion on how to think about modern supply chain efficiency.
00:52 — The more “links” in the supply chain, the greater potential for disruption. Making the supply chain more resilient often means reducing the number of links in the chain. This includes bringing production and warehousing closer to end markets.
01:32 — Supply chains are stronger when they become networks full of diverse sourcing.
01:59 — The pandemic exemplified how important it is to prepare for a rainy day and stock inventory enough to protect against future supply chain disruptions.
