    Looking at Supply Chain Risk through an Executive Lens w/ Bob Brese

    Looking at Supply Chain Risk through an Executive Lens w/ Bob Brese

    COVID-19 has changed everything. 
    From the way that we do business, to what customers expect out of brands, to the way that brands interact with their customers.

    The truth is, we’re never going back to the way things were in January, 2020. The new normal has yet to be revealed, but businesses are already rethinking their unflinching commitment to global supply chains and considering alternative solutions. 
    But such changes are not without risk. 
    Our guest on the What Lies Beneath? podcast this week is Bob Brese, VP at Gartner and the former CIO of the Department of Energy, and he had a lot to say around the issue of supply chain risk from the executive level. He also talked all about: 
    -Why he thinks there will be more scrutiny from congress moving forward around supply chain risk
    -How he sees the executive response to supply chain risk changing as a result of COVID-19
    -Why COVID-19 is the greatest forcing function in business innovation in most people’s lifetimes

    And how will this pandemic impact or change our supply chain in the United States, particularly our retail & meat supply chain. There will no doubt be disruptions and adjustments, but what do those look like in the long run? 

    On this episode of What Lies Beneath?, we sit down and talk with Greg Spragg. Greg is the managing director at GrowthWise Group, and he had a lot to share with us about: 
    -The signals that he’s looking for to determine when companies are ready to reopen?

    -Why he thinks the Meal Kit business will come out of this pandemic in a great place.
    -The reasons he thinks the US might stop relying so much on foreign supply chains

    The Role of Ethics Compliance in the Post-Crisis Landscape w/ Grace Michallet

    “Big Data is thrown around so much with little appreciation of what it actually means.”

    In a time of global crisis like CoVid19, the risk of corner cutting is at it’s highest.  
     
    Our guest on the show this episode, Grace Michallet, is the director of corporate ethics and compliance for one of the world’s largest infrastructure engineering and construction companies: AECOM
     
    On this episode of What Lies Beneath, she shared with us critical compliance considerations like:

    When to Invest in Supply Chain Security? Yesterday w/ Mark Weatherford

    When to Invest in Supply Chain Security? Yesterday w/ Mark Weatherford

    How well do you understand your organization's supply chain structure? 
    You’re likely familiar with your “first-tier” suppliers. You’ve probably got legal contracts, or even a physical relationship in place with them.

    But how familiar are you with those suppliers down the chain? What at Interos, we like to call the “N-th tier suppliers.” 
    The less you focus on understanding them, the more you get lulled into a false sense of security in thinking that you’ve got your supply chain security figured out, integrated, and fully understood. 
    And frankly, at least according to our most recent podcast guest, Mark Weatherford, most organizations do a very poor job of understanding even their first-tier suppliers, let alone those n-th tier ones. 
    Mark joined us on a recent episode of the What Lies Beneath? Podcast, to talk all about: 
    The difference in policy & standards development as it relates to government vs. the private sector What companies need to be doing to invest in their supply chain security Why it’s become a priority for every company to invest in supply chain security right now
