It is a pivotal moment for the global automotive industry. Covid-19 has brought huge disruption to the economy and business landscape worldwide, but a crisis can act as a catalyst for further innovation, forcing organisations to seek alternative ways to operate in times of turbulence, and beyond. At the FT Digital Future of the Car Week, influential figures in the automotive sector will scrutinise the impact of Covid-19 and the complex interplay of forces changing the car industry forever. What carmakers do now and what they do next will influence their chances of survival in the post-pandemic world. These free, 60-minutes sessions are delivered by the Financial Times.
President Thorsten Muschal will participate in the session Supply chain shake-up on the 8th of July. The second day of the online event will look into resilience after the crisis. As car-makers get back to work and production restarts, what can the industry learn from this crisis to better insulate itself against widespread and atypical disruptions in the future?
