Companies that treat their supply chains as strategic assets have achieved 70 percent higher performance in key financial and operational metrics; however, only 45 percent of businesses view their supply chains in this way, according to PwC’s recent global survey.  This session will share what “treating the supply chain as a strategic asset” involves, as well as strategies for propelling supply chain management onto the C-suite priority agenda.
