About the Event

While last year was about adapting to the extraordinary challenging circumstances, the world at large has now started evolving towards ‘Shaping the future’. This crisis has sparked an avalanche of innovative ideas and launched an entire generation of entrepreneurs transforming the way we live and work. There are several global transitions that have far reaching impact on the way we conduct our life. DISHA-2021 is all about finding out the nature and depth of transition, opportunities it creates for supply chain and strategies that can be adopted to transform individually and collectively.

Technology which is at the centre of this transition has enabled productivity and increased the pace of digitalisation, automation and mechanisation. The major shift is in energy transition from fossil fuels to green renewable and carbon free energy such as solar – wind – battery - hydrogen bundle. We see geopolitical shifts leading to newer country and trade alliances with potential shift of supply sources. Consumer tastes and shopping behaviour are changing from physical retail to online with willingness to pay premium for green goods which impacts the supply chain design. The world is also seeing disruption in conventional lines of businesses – healthcare, biopharma, banking etc.

Supply Chain is transiting from just in time to ‘Just in Case’ and brings alongside a complex risk management. It faces vulnerabilities on account of global and opaque sourcing chains, calling for increasing technology usage and transparent systems. This has triggered Supply Chain rebalancing - be it source changes, location changes, cost differentials driving localisation, managing portfolio rejigs, corporate restructuring (including backward integration), recognition and creation of new trade agreements, adopting massive technology usage – be it big data, cloud or blockchain etc. All these impact workforce composition, reskilling and rejig of operating models, driven by cheap and all-pervasive global connectivity. Supply Chain is the key enabler that can derive synergies from all the complex transition elements and steer the organisation in this new normal and India stands to derive immense value out of the transitions.

IIMM Mumbai presents Virtual Disha-2021, spread over three days, for an interactive experience with experts, attendees and partners for exchange of thought-provoking content and views to enhance leadership in Supply Chain.
