Supply Chain Analytics
Spring 2017 Supply Chain Leaders' Forum
February 22-23, 2017
It is no secret that competition is no longer between organizations but among supply chains. Institutions are realizing the competitive advantage that smarter supply chain analytics represents. Data analytics is no longer a “nice-to-have” capability for today’s business. It has become a "do-or-die" requirement not only because of the increased complexity of supply chains, but also because of the prominent role supply chain plays in an organization’s cost structure and profitability. New strategies, improved skills and more powerful tools are necessary to reveal insightful information buried in data.
The Center for Supply Chain Research will host Spring 2017 Supply Chain Leaders' Forum on “Supply Chain Analytics,” February 22nd and 23rd. Join us in this highly interactive conference to share industry successes, discuss challenges other institutions have had in developing analytical capabilities, and brainstorm game-changing ideas from like-minded individuals, pushing this emerging field forward.
We are fortunate to have Ms. Donna Palumbo, EdD, Senior Manager, Innovation Sourcing at Johnson & Johnson as the forum’s program director. A pro-active, dynamic, hands-on strategic leader with over 15 years in various supply chain management disciplines, Dr. Palumbo leads team members in the identification and implementation of innovative solutions and has been instrumental in the development and execution of game changing supplier engagement business models.
A true standout in Supply Chain Management, Dr. Palumbo knows what it takes to drive innovative solutions throughout an organization. With a great appreciation for the complexities organizations face utilizing data analytics. Her expertise and vision of pushing this emerging field forward will undoubtedly make a real impact.
Twice a year the Center for Supply Chain Research sponsors an invitation-only, issues discussion program called the Supply Chain Leaders Forum. The program is intended for mid to senior level supply chain managers and executives. Its purpose is to foster peer-to-peer discussions of current issues dealing with logistics and supply chain management and to seek commonalities in business practice. Themes from prior Supply Chain Leaders' Forums include; visibility, transformation, strategy, Lean/Six Sigma, globalization, sustainability, emerging technology, integration, synchronization, talent development, omni-channel, security, and risk mitigation.
