This podcast is a recording of a presentation Curtis Greve made at the June 2010 GBQ Redbank Executive Breakfast Series in Columbus Ohio. In this presentation Curtis discusses the threats and opportunities posed by three external drivers every company will face in the next five to ten years:
- Dramatic increases in transportation costs and the resulting changes that will be required in supply chain networks
- Reverse logistics networks and how companies can increase their bottom line profits by as much as 4% or more
- Continued demand for development of sustainable solutions and how sustainability can dramatically increase profits
Curtis points out that most companies will agree these three drivers are going to happen. Business executive also realize that these elements will have a negative impact on their business if they don’t address the situation, yet few are doing anything about it. How a company deals with these inevitable changes will determine if they will thrive or if they will find themselves at a significant disadvantage that could result in their ultimate demise.
