Fall 2014 Supply Chain Leaders Forum
Supply Chain Visibility and Alignment
September 4 - 5, 2014 (Welcoming Reception evening of September 3rd)
Today's business realities - volatile demand, shorter product life cycles, highly competitive markets, and ever increasing supply chain complexity – require visibility for the end-to-end supply chain, but what exactly does that mean? How do we define and measure visibility attainment? What data should be considered and at what levels within the supply chain? Is the current state of technology able to capture and filter the influx of fragmented data from disparate systems for real-time decision support?
Join the Center for Supply Chain Research and your peers on September 4 – 5, 2014, for the Fall 2014 Supply Chain Leaders Forum to learn the progress that industry leaders have made achieving alignment through enterprise and network visibility.
Mr. Alex Stark, the director of Marketing for Kane is Able, will lead the forum, Supply Chain Visibility and Alignment, as our guest program director. Stark has been in the supply chain industry in operations, business development, marketing, and communications for the past 15 years. He has collaborated with many companies utilizing KANE’s nationwide distribution solution from integrated distribution, workforce management to transportation specifically designed to meet the needs of consumer goods manufacturers and their retail partners.
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 leader forums include supply chain visibility, customization, flexibility, transformation, strategy, Lean/Six Sigma, globalization, environmental sustainability, and talent development.
