Amadou Sene, director of the Supply Chain Management Center of Excellence at the African Institute of Management (IAM), had recently started a supply chain advising group in Senegal. Formal training and practicing of supply chain practices weren’t common in Senegal and Amadou’s long-term goal was to change that. He had already worked with external academics to develop a Masters program in Supply Chain Management at IAM and his next step was for the center to start providing consulting services. But, then COVID-19 hit. Two months into the pandemic, he had to address two questions for his clients: 1) how do we deal with the immediate implications of COVID-19, and 2) after COVID-19 is no longer a concern itself, how will the experience change the supply chains and, specifically, how will that affect firms in Senegal?
