Power of the Profession


We believe that the supply chain profession has the power to deliver competitive advantage and shareholder value for business, and have a positive lasting impact on the world we live in.


We exist to advance the profession and know that the best people to do that are the executives who are leading it today. We recognize breakthroughs in supply chain innovation and the development of the people who deliver it.

Annual Power of the Profession Awards

Our awards identify, recognize and enable collective learning from the most impactful and innovative supply chain initiatives every year. Winners demonstrate an ongoing commitment to innovative supply chain management and deliver standout business and talent development projects.

As a community of the world’s most influential supply chain practitioners, our awards are judged by the profession – nominations are shortlisted by open vote from across the community and finalists are judged by a panel of the top supply chain minds from leading companies across the world. Semi-finalists and finalists get valuable feedback on their initiatives as part of the process and winners are showcased at an Oscars-style ceremony at our SCM World Live Americas Forum in February.

We welcome entries from all organizations – you do not have to be a member of the SCM World community to enter.
