Supply Chain Paradigm Shift—The Face of Today's Supply Chain and a Next-Generation Solution
In the current business environment we face an unprecedented level of demand and supply uncertainty that is driven by factors including:
Changes in buying patterns
Accelerating rate of new product introductions rates
A global dynamic supply network
Challenging economic conditions
What is the new supply chain agenda to manage these uncertainties? In order for companies to survive and flourish in this environment, the fundamental thinking surrounding supply chain management concepts must change. This session will introduce a new approach–enabling rapid response to change, in particular:
How supply chain response management can be applied across the business
The required capabilities, that when put together, enable a strategic response management competency.
