Steps for Sourcing Executives

➔ Securing inventory and managing the ramp-down and ramp-up of
supply chains: Sourcing executives are negotiating a delicate balancing act to minimize inventory buildup, ensure newness in assortment, and secure future supply all while being mindful of the financial and humanitarian impact of these actions in the countries of production. 

➔ Optimizing cash flow along the supply chain and ensuring the
optimal trade-off between cash position, profit impact, and supplier
stability: Sourcing executives have indicated a variety of responses when it comes to making payments.

➔ Proactively managing financial risk across the entire supply chain,
with an approach tailored to suppliers: Cancellations and order reductions are putting suppliers into financial distress. Most fashion-sourcing executives report that at least 25 percent of their suppliers are facing financial
distress now and anticipate that more than half will be in this position in six months’ time, putting millions of jobs and livelihoods at risk.

➔ Adjusting internal costs, including open commitments and operating
expenses of the sourcing function: More than half of sourcing executives have applied temporary staff measures to help manage operating costs, including salary reductions, furlough, temporary layoffs, and deferred compensation.
