Supply chain leaders who successfully align supply chain strategy with the business are at the helm of the world’s most competitive companies. The Managing for Supply Chain Excellence workshop is a one-day, Executive-level program designed to introduce supply chain leaders to a new framework that translates business strategies into supply chain execution plans and policies.

Through discussions and exercises participants in the Managing for Supply Chain Excellence Workshop will learn:

  • How to put structure around key performance drivers that must be formalized, managed and implemented to truly lead business-impacting supply chains
  • How to utilize a framework to assimilate supply chain strategy, network, resource management and talent development with the top and bottom lines of the business
  • What to do next with an actionable check list to gauge supply chain maturity, incorporating the overall Supply Chain Strategy, Network, Process Blueprint and Resources
