Executive Advisory Board

The SCM World Executive Advisory Board (EAB) is an exclusive group of the most influential global operations executives from the world’s leading companies. The purpose of the EAB is to develop, promote and progress the discipline of supply chain management, encouraging both current and future leaders within the profession to make a greater impact not only on the organisations they work for but on our wider society.

In practice, the EAB helps to direct the research agenda of the SCM World community as well as provide oversight on key strategic initiatives and development plans.

As well as providing cross-functional research, SCM World and the Executive Advisory Board recognise the need for a greater focus on the value chains of some industries in the community. In 2015 we established the Future of Healthcare Advisory Board to promote the value of supply chain to improving access to healthcare. See its members and their work here.
