Business Consulting facilitates MCCI webinar

SGV’s Business Consulting Team led a webinar titled Zooming in to a Better Normal for members of the Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) on 29 July. The webinar discussed how to effectively manage and reopen businesses during the pandemic. MCCI President Steven Yu welcomed participants to the webinar which included MCCI Vice President for Internal Affairs Kellie Ko, Event Co-Chair Walter Ong and Board of Directors Member Marc Anthony Ynoc.

Business Consulting Partner Marnelli Eileen J. Fullon (MJF) discussed a human-centered response to disruption, emphasizing that market leaders should not only focus on short-term actions to transition to the new normal but also innovate and transform their business models to adapt to the changing world. She explained the impact of the pandemic on consumer behavior and how it resulted in the emergence and transition of consumer segments. She also discussed how businesses can address employee concerns by transforming their workplace and making decisions that benefit their long-term agenda and are anchored on their organization’s purpose.

Business Consulting Partner Jan Ray G. Manlapaz (RGM) provided tips on how to achieve supply chain (SC) resilience through the key capabilities of the Prepare, Sense, and Respond Framework. He also explained the traditional global SC structure and its gaps. He then presented insights on the future of the global SC network, emphasizing the value of “coopetition” or cooperative competition between companies that form a collaborative relationship to mutually benefit both businesses.
