What Boston Scientific’s evolving supply chain strategy means for partners, productivity and M&A
The medical device industry obviously isn’t immune to the challenges posed by a shaky supply chain. But OEM leaders like Boston Scientific need to work doubly hard to ensure they have the supplies needed to provide devices for patient care. In this episode, we’ll talk with Brad Sorenson, executive vice president, Global Operations, and Paudie O’Connor, senior vice president of supply chain, to learn how Boston Scientific has managed the crisis. Topics we cover include supplier relationships, the value (and risk) of redundancies, how to reducing shipping costs and other critical topics. Supply chain executives at OEMs and smaller vendors will value from the conversation. Thanks to Paxxus for sponsoring this episode.
