Welcome to the first newsletter from The Conference Board European Economy, Strategy & Finance (ESF) Center.
The reversal of the globalization era is highlighted in our latest report: Going Local: Changing Value Chains and the Impact on Revenue and Jobs. This shows that companies are shifting towards more local suppliers to achieve mass customization and respond to changing customer tastes and concerns over sustainability.
This trend marks a decisive change from the heydays of outsourcing and long-distance supply chains. It has important implications for strategy and finance executives, as it affects revenues and staffing needs. Check out why this is happening and what it might mean for your company.
Each month, we’ll select a few insights from our latest research, highlight opportunities to connect with peers and experts, and update you about media coverage.
We look forward to providing you with timely insights into the key issues of our day. Up-to-date information on topics of timely interest is always available on our dedicated ESF webpage.
