Being a Supply Chain Guru himself, Tishey answers some very basic and frequently asked questions with regards to supply chains and supply chain management. Tishey very interestingly connects the origin of supply chains from the Mahabharata and even World War II! Tishey explains how supply chains were in existence ever since people needed to deliver raw materials in order to procure a final product. Tishey throws light on the shift in the responsibilities of a supply chain manager from solely managing supplies to handling three modern aspects of supply chain procurement. He also explains the importance of sustainable sourcing which plays a very important role in protecting the environment whilst carrying out the smooth working of supply chains. Smaller changes which are slowly being adapted by supply chain networks have also been very correctly highlighted by him. Tishey describes the position of supply chains during this trying pandemic and gives his opinions on the subject. Technology has also played a very vital role in bringing about the many changes that supply chains have faced.
