How Blockchain is Redefining Supply Chain Management - 26th August 2021
Patrick delivered a lecture as part of the TBC Distinguished Guest Lecture Series titled ‘How Blockchain is Redefining Supply Chain Management’.
Technologies such as blockchain present dynamic opportunities across supply chains. Improvements in food security, supplier transparency, traceability, reductions in process time, food waste, and administration costs are achievable. Blockchain is a revolutionary technology that has transformed specific business processes, which are now visible in real-time through a smartphone or a similar device. However, when will blockchain become a significant technology that will be deployed across multiple supply chains?
Contents of the lecture:

- What can blockchain offer supply chain managers?
