Global economic uncertainty is making manufacturers and supply chain managers think long, hard and differently. They need to adjust to a growing number of variables, like raw material prices and shifting market demands. Banks are also reluctant to lend.

They should pool their risks and use the crisis as an opportunity to implement new strategies and ride this out together.
