Innovation is uniquely dependent on supply chains as new vendors and new components need to be designed, built, prototyped, sourced. Impacts can come at us in unexpected ways ranging from government mandated staff reductions that affect productivity, communication hurdles, and challenges when multiple disciplines need to work together on-site but staff limitations preclude collaborative work environments.

Flight reductions can result in limited cargo capacity leading to schedule delays and cost escalation. Vendors may no-longer be allowed on site, or if they do require extensive, complex planning to get approval to be on-site to accomplish a previously simple 4 hr service call. Internally the team responsible for implementation innovations can become fractured in their communications, their perception of priorities and goals.

Overcoming these challenges become drivers for yet other innovations in how we accomplish work.
