RALEIGH, N.C. – After releasing his latest playbook, “Restarting the Economy: Guidance for Public and Private Leaders,” Jim Tompkins, founder and chairman of Tompkins International, will join two upcoming webinars to help supply chain professionals resume operations after COVID-19.
- Friday, May 15 at 11am EST: Tompkins will lead the Institute of Industrial & Systems Engineers (IISE) Global Webinar of the Month, “Restarting the Economy: Guidance on the Backside of the Disruption,” where he will share his detailed strategies for how companies can prepare to do business in the not-so-normal conditions over the next 6-18 months.
- Wednesday, May 20 at 9:30am EST: Tompkins will discuss the impacts of innovative and crisis disruptions on supply chains and commerce and how companies must continuously improve, transform and reinvent for success in the webinar, “VUCA: How Do We Get Back to Better?“
Tompkins has been steering the development of Tompkins International’s COVID-19 Resources, an online hub of educational and thought leadership content that focuses on the impacts of COVID-19, successful supply chain reinvention strategies and other related topics to help businesses flourish in times of VUCA-volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
“While the world has been focused on controlling, avoiding and eliminating the public health risks associated with COVID-19, this pandemic has been wreaking havoc on our global economy,” said Tompkins. “These webinars will explore how businesses can successfully restart operations and adapt to the ‘new normal’ moving forward.”
