SCM World, the global institute for senior supply chain executives today announced the date and speaker line-up for the 2012 Chief Supply Chain Officers' Summit. The event is the largest virtual conference of its kind in the world and year on year attracts over 1,000 senior supply chain, procurement, operations and IT leaders from global manufacturers and retailers.
The theme for this year's CSCO Summit is "Supply chain standing up to the test". Senior supply chain executives overwhelmingly worry about talent management and leadership development in their organisations. The test is using best practice, newly abundant field data and leading edge strategies to design supply chains that are agile enough to handle demand volatility -without relying on costly buffers of inventory, capacity and time. Talent in this context is more a matter of creative problem solving than mastery of established operational skills. The agenda will focus on how business leaders are meeting these challenges with innovations in process and information technology and shed light on strategies for logistics, sourcing, and demand management within complex global manufacturing & retail supply chains.
Delegates attending will be executives responsible for designing and executing supply chain, procurement, operations and information systems and technology strategy for global manufacturers and retailers.
