2020 Reflections: Looking Back to Move Forward

Navigating the Talent Challenge in Procurement and Supply Chain

2020 – what a year! COVID-19 has not only disrupted but also challenged global supply chains in unprecedented ways. While we all cannot wait for a brand new start, it can be tricky to put the challenges of 2020 behind us. To learn as much as possible from the adversities we all faced last year, we’d like to suggest that we begin 2021 with a brief period of reflections

How 2020 experiences will shape 2021 and beyond?

DSJ Global Report - Looking back to move forward

There are a lot of frustrations that supply chain organisations have been facing in 2020. Supply availability issues caused by lockdowns, geopolitical tensions and uncertainties, ongoing trade tensions, everchanging market dynamics, volatile demand, volatile costs, and changing ways of working, including remote working. All these increased pressure forced end-to-end supply chain companies and professionals to learn and adapt rapidly.

What has 2020 taught us? What does the future of the workplace hold for end-to-end supply chain teams? Will hiring still be the same? How can employers secure talent in this “new normal”? 

At DSJ Global, these are the questions that have defined our daily conversations with clients, candidates, and our global workforce. Our new report, "2020 Reflections: Looking Back to Move Forward” examines the lessons of 2020, and which will help drive success in the year ahead.
