Discover how to get started with supply chain-centric decision making. Learn how to implement operating principles that guide decision making for key business processes.


Building supply chains that focus on performance in spite of complexity is a problem manufacturers are now solving. This means focusing on advancing the entire supply chain, from end to end.  Learn how decisions that managers make in one area of the business can inevitably have a disproportionate impact on supply chain cost and performance. Hear how supply chain-centric decision making can re-ignite operational improvement efforts. By generating additional value and eliminating waste, it drives hard financial benefits - revenue growth, lower operating costs, improved margins and reduced resource requirements, which shrinks working capital requirements and improves return on assets. Discover how to create management systems that drive sustainable cross-functional leadership, collaboration and engagement and visibility to business performance. Hear how to establish KPIs and improvement goals for the short- and long-term.
