Event-driven supply chains have unique goals and unique customers. People working in these environments must design new strategies and ways of overcoming challenges and addressing these requirements. This presentation will explore the characteristics of event-driven supply chains and enable attendees to participate in an analysis of functional and structural attributes.  Attendees will leave with a thorough understanding of organization setup processes, key systems, and chief capabilities. The speaker will use real-world examples to illustrate the importance of achieving connected activities in your event-driven supply chains.
