Flyingscot, 

You probably need to stay tuned and read one of my upcoming articles about predictive analytics in supply chain resiliency. There you will find out what Gene Long advice supply chains to do in order to develop foresight. :) It's coming as soon as Hailey is back.

@Flyingscott, that would be a good trick! I think, though, that the commitment to considering potential issues and weighing new moves regularly has to be part of the recipe. OK EBN readers, what other ingredients would you add to the list to make that recipe?

How does a company develop foresight?  If I could bottle that I'd be a billionaire.

Pretty interesting analogy of supply-chain to a very long glass pipe. We have to build up and make it stronger, like steel.
