Rethink Supply Chain

Global business is at a crossroads.  Our previous assumptions on globalization, customer experience and even the general purpose of corporations are being questioned. Supply chain executives live at the intersection of these critical issues and can lead the way in this uncertain environment.

Leadership requires agility at an accelerated pace to match the speed of customers and markets. The ability to adeptly rethink and reinvent has emerged as a critical capability on par with advanced supply chain maturity for today’s business.  Whether it is reconfiguring the supply network based on shifting trade winds, using AI and big data analysis to capture the voice of the customer, or redesigning offerings for greater circularity and sustainability, supply chain is expanding its role beyond traditional boundaries.
