MIAMI 31 JANUARY 2017

Shape the future of supply chain, celebrate your successes
and be recognized by your peers

Each year, the SCM World Power of the Profession Awards identify, recognize and enable collective learning from the most impactful and innovative supply chain initiatives. The winners are those who deliver outstanding breakthrough performances in two key areas – the first in supply chain impact and the second in supply chain talent development – as voted for by their industry peers and our expert panel of independent, executive-level judges. Following a two-stage judging process, the awards culminate in a ceremony during SCM World’s Live Americas event, which is attended by the world’s most influential supply chain practitioners.

The 2017 Power of the Profession Awards program is now closed, with the winners announced on 31 January 2017 in Miami. Use the menu below or scroll down to view this year’s winners, finalists and semi-finalists.

The 2018 program will launch in spring 2017. To find out more, email awards@scmworld.com, or register for updates via the form at the bottom of this page.

Awards Timeline

For the 2017 awards program (now closed), entries were first shortlisted down to a group of semi-finalists by members of the SCM World research team, which were revealed in a live webinar on 19 October 2016. To choose the finalists, your supply chain professional peers across the SCM World community were responsible for shortlisting the top six initiatives for each of the two main categories.

On 15 November we revealed the twelve finalists in a live webinar. From this list, our panel of distinguished judges will select the strongest initiative in each sub-category, and from those, determine the overall winner.

The winners were then revealed and celebrated at a gala dinner at SCM World Live Americas on 31 January 2017 at the Turnberry Isle Resort in Miami, USA.

Details of the 2018 awards program will be available in spring 2017. To register for more information, complete the form at the bottom of this page or contact awards@scmworld.com.
