Reimagining Sustainability in the Supply Chain

 APICS Webinar Helping to Realize the Potential of Supply Chain Management by Looking Beyond the Horizon

Date:  March 16, 2016
Time: 1:00–2:00 p.m. Central

Sustainability continues to be an important and growing supply chain concern. Historically focusing on the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit, the concept now is being reimagined to encompass a multitude of other factors that are critical to developing a viable competitive advantage. 

Attend this APICS webinar to learn how to transform sustainability from a burden into an opportunity. Drawing from the Supply Chain Management: Beyond the Horizon research project, Michigan StateUniversity’s Steven A. Melnyk, PhD, and Ericsson AB’s Lars Magnusson will share insights about 

• embracing complexity to enhance competitiveness 
• reimagining sustainability to support the business model 
• risk and resiliency as opportunities to turn sustainability into growth, not cost. 

Presenters:

Steven A. Melnyk, PhD
Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management
