Inflation and supply chain disruption are wreaking havoc on distributors’ ability to drive profitability. But the time has passed for stopgap fixes. Companies need a plan to mitigate the impact. Leaders’ most urgent task is to secure their companies’ long-term profitability by managing the effect of inflation and supply chain disruption on their customers.
In this episode, our hosts spoke with profitability expert Jonathan Byrnes, senior lecturer at MIT and author of Islands of Profit in a Sea of Red Ink and Choose Your Customer: How to Compete Against the Digital Giants and Thrive. They discussed how distributors can take back control in this unpredictable market – slowing the profit drain and bolstering their bottom line with Enterprise Profit Management.
