Today's guest is Dr. Yossi Sheffi. Yossi is professor of Engineering Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he serves as Director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL).
He is an expert in systems optimization, risk analysis and supply chain management, which are the subjects he researches and teaches at MIT, both at the MIT School of Engineering and at the Sloan School of Management.
He is also a very prolific author of several books including:
The Power of Resilience: How the Best Companies Manage the Unexpected
Balancing Green: When to Embrace Sustainability in Business (and When Not to)
The New (Ab)Normal: Reshaping Business and Supply Chain Strategy Beyond Covid-19
His latest book, "A Shot in the Arm: How Science, Engineering, and Supply Chains Converged to Vaccinate the World" was just published a couple of weeks ago.
This episode of The Logistics Tribe is hosted by Marco Prüglmeier and covers a wide spectrum of topics: the Semiconductor shortage, supply chain disruptions during COVID, climate change, globalization and the role technology can play to tackle all of those issues.
