Change in the Supply Chain: High Tech's New Growth in Emerging Markets

Video Description

According to a new survey of high tech manufacturers, the export picture is brightening in emerging nations. High tech companies operate in a complex supply chain environment where rapid product life cycles and narrow margins put constant pressure on market share and financial performance. Although the industry was hit hard by the global recession, U.S.-based high tech executives believe the picture for exports has improved. Given the critical role of emerging markets in driving revenue and profitability gains in the high tech industry, the companies that excel in import/export are likely to capture more than their fair share of growth. In this HBR webinar, Dr. Yossi Sheffi, director of the Center for Transportation and Logistics at MIT, discusses the high tech supply chain, the impact of globalization and particularly of emerging markets, and the growth of logistics clusters to deliver value and drive new revenues.
