Podcast Description – In this podcast, we were delighted to have an insightful chat with Dr. Marcell Vollmer, the digital transformation and supply chain expert. The conversation kicks off with Marcell giving a layman’s definition of the term “supply chain”. He takes us through his professional journey and shares with us his motto: “Learn every single day”. He talks about the impact of globalization on supply chains and why we need to rethink the way we set up supply chains. Marcell also smoothly tackles our main query, i.e., what is the role of big data and artificial intelligence in the supply chain? He highlighted the need for risk management and mitigation. Marcell believes that it is up to us to define the future.
