Do Blockchain, IoT and AI represent hype or hope for supply chain planning? The answer is both, but there’s a way to avoid what Gartner calls the “trough of disillusionment” and determine which emerging technology can realistically meet your essential needs.

In our latest Big Ideas in Supply Chain podcast, we chat with Anne Robinson about how setting appropriate expectations can go a long way toward closing the gap between hype of what you want, and the hope of what the technology can actually do. 

Watch Anne’s discussion with Mohan Sodhi, a professor at Bayes Business School who’s studied the adoption of emerging technologies and shares great insights on how to get the most out of your investments.
