Power of the Profession

Growing Through Digital, Leading with Purpose, Inspiring our People

Supply chain management in 2018 has come of age. It is no longer enough to assure supply and cut costs. CEOs now demand more. Today’s supply chain leaders decisively impact customers, profits and the business’ environmental and social legacy.

For more than a decade now, we’ve used the phrase ‘supply chain saves the world’ to crystallize the challenge our profession faces. It includes sustainability, but also demands business vitality. The call to action has never been more urgent. The opportunity to make a difference has never been greater. This year’s event will concentrate on three pillars of leadership:

Growing Through Digital

Business is all about growth, and yet for many established industries disruptions in technology, society and demographics threaten stasis or even decline. Consumer products struggle with changing tastes, retail faces a revolution in channels, and automakers contemplate a peak car moment. Supply chain can and must play a central role in reviving growth with innovation in customer fulfillment. This includes product-as-a-service, ominchannel sales and support, and extreme personalization. Cheaper alone won’t drive growth in saturated markets. Better might.

Leading with Purpose

Maximizing shareholder value is a business touchstone. For many however, especially among the young, this is not enough. Great businesses change the world and today that often means making it healthier, happier and more inclusive. Industrial technology once was all about extraction. Now we have the tools to enable a circular economy in which natural resources, including the people we employ and serve, are cared for systematically.

Inspiring Our People

Digital and the rise of machine learning is seen by many as a threat to work. And yet, experience and research both say that people are the key to leveraging technology. Supply chain leaders must inspire teams grappling with change in technology and process. They must demonstrate how agility, customer centricity, and commitment to quality are fundamentally human capabilities to be enhanced with technology, not simply replaced by machines.

These three imperatives tie together not only the essential day-to-day duties of supply chain management, but also the possibility of achieving lasting greatness in business and the world.

Connect with your peers

Want real takeaways from senior practitioners and peers of your level to take back to the office? SCM World Leaders Forum unique format is a strictly closed-door, cross-industry forum. No press, vendor exhibition, or media allowed, so your conversations with fellow industry leaders will remain confidential and you’ll experience an environment without vendor solicitation.

Keynote/Panel Sessions

Senior leaders share practical insights into their supply chain operations and you can question them directly to get to the heart of all the key issues.

Executive Huddles

Small, private roundtable discussions focusing on the critical issues affecting the future of the profession. As all dialogue remains strictly confidential, you can speak openly and freely without any risk of later citation.

1-2-1 Peer Connections

You can pre-book private face-to-face meetings with executive peers attending the forum using a private online portal running up to and during the event. Gain real practical insights into what other companies and industries are doing to take back to your boardroom.

Informal Networking

A host of informal and relaxed networking opportunities over the course of the forum provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy time out from the intense business discussions and reflect with peers on the key themes of the day.
