Building Antifragile Supply Chains with Visibility

March 28, 2024

Amidst recent disruptions in the supply chain, thriving requires more than mere uncertainty management—it demands a paradigm shift, transforming challenges into strategic advantages. Developed by bestselling author Nassim Nicholas Taleb in 'Antifragile,' this concept revolutionizes our approach to supply chains. Unlike 'resilience,' which merely aims to restore pre-crisis norms, mere recovery isn't sufficient. Join Nassim Nicholas Taleb and Shippeo's Chief Product Officer, Anand Medepalli, on March 28th at 4:00 pm CET. Let's collaboratively redefine resilience and delve into the intricacies of constructing an antifragile supply chain.

Who should attend:

  1. C-Level Executives: Leaders in the retail, F&B, automotive, building materials, petrochemical, or logistics/transportation sectors, seeking to assess and enhance the antifragility of their supply chain.
  2. Supply Chain and Transportation Professionals: Those in the field looking for practical insights and tips on implementing antifragility within their specific supply chain contexts.
  3. Enthusiasts of Supply Chains: Individuals with a keen interest in supply chains, eager to gain a deeper understanding of the Antifragility concept and its application in the industry.

His work has been published into 49 languages. In addition to his trader life, Taleb has also written, as a backup of the Incerto, more than 70 technical and scholarly papers in mathematical statistics, genetics, quantitative finance, statistical physics, medicine, philosophy, ethics, economics, & international affairs, around the notion of risk and probability (grouped in the Technical Incerto).Taleb is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering (retired) [and, finance related bio only: scientific advisor for Universa Investments]. His current focus is on the properties of systems that can handle disorder ("antifragile").Taleb refuses all honors and anything that "turns knowledge into a spectator sport".
