    Working Capital Strategies in a World of Supply Chain Disruptions

    Working Capital Strategies in a World of Supply Chain Disruptions

    In 2022, most supply chain leaders are primarily focused on improving working capital as a way to combat inflation.
    Inventory positions are increasing as purchases are now cheaper than they will be 6 months from now… at least in theory. This perception and the actions it drives are putting further strain on an already overly taxed supply chain.
    In this Supply Chain Now livestream episode, Scott Luton and Greg White were joined by Dan Reeve and Nick Carpenter from Esker and Dr. Morgan Swink from TCU to explore how digital technology can help you improve your company’s working capital - and where on the balance sheet to look for improvements:
    • How today’s supply chain challenges are also affecting each company’s suppliers and customers
    • The extent to which companies are purposefully managing their cash flow v. allowing external forces to dictate their choices
    • What Dr. Swink and his team at TCU learned from recent research into working capital practices and outcomes

    Dial P for Procurement Crossover: Does the CHIPS Act provide the Helpful Incentives the U.S. needs?

    Dial P for Procurement Crossover: Does the CHIPS Act provide the Helpful Incentives the U.S. needs?

    On July 27th, the Senate passed the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022. It is now awaiting President Biden’s signature. Proponents of the bill say it will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign producers of semiconductor chips by building manufacturing capabilities at home. Skeptics – which oddly include both progressive Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and conservative Republicans – say it amounts to “corporate welfare.” So who is right?
    The CHIPS in the CHIPS Act stands for ‘Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors.’ But are the incentives, and the resulting changes, actually “Helpful” for the U.S. semiconductor industry?
    In this Dial P for Procurement crossover episode, Kelly Barner digs into the global semiconductor market and talks about some relevant considerations not covered in the language of the legislation:
    • What’s in the bill?
    • What can and can’t be done with the funding?
    • Why has U.S. semiconductor manufacturing capacity has been falling since the 1990s?
    • How long will it take to see the benefits?
    • And issues like sustainability and intellectual property that still have to be resolved before this bill can achieve the ultimate vision.

Insightful and engaging!

It’s obvious that the Supply Chain Now team puts extraordinary effort into every single episode of the podcast. But what makes this show a true standout is the quality of the guests, stories, and strategies shared. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

pat miller-stevens ,

Very genuine

I enjoy the wide variety of supply chain topics and the team of hosts bring an interesting perspective to the conversations.

elephant282 ,

Outdated information.

10 minuets into an episode in 06/21 they finished talking about sports accolades to shove an advertisement for the guest.

Next episode I listened to they talked about prices of semi conductors in 1990.

Listen to these guys complain about how life has changed if you love outdated podcasts.
