White paper article — Click here for more information
Here’s what CLA says about the paper:
“Each inflationary period has its own distinct set of pressures. Successful decisions made during 2008’s inflationary period might not translate successfully to the next inflationary period. Even within the same inflationary period, the impacts on different organizations won’t be the same.
To actively guard against negative inflation impacts, assess and test three key areas: supply chain, labor, and pricing.”
