The Supply Chain of the Future will be Different

We have all heard pronouncements about the future such as, “the future will belong to the quick”, or “the future will belong to the agile”, and we could replace agile with flexible, enterprising, adept, adroit, hard-working, thoughtful, smart, capable, competent, and on. Why do we care who will own the future? Because the future is the one place that where we all look toward living and working. That said, the future will most likely belong to those with an awareness of the likely future directions, and that can incorporate that awareness into plans to leverage the most likely future outlooks, while improving the current state.

With career horizons that look out approximately forty years, and business horizons that extend toward perpetuity, it makes sense to extend business planning horizons beyond quarterly, annually, or even three year segments, and for those looking to enter the workforce, it makes sense to extend personal planning horizons well beyond college graduation. However, in order to cast meaningful long-range plans there must be a fact-based meaningful long-range vision that can anchor the planning process. On October 24th Richard Gendon of the Center for Professional Management will supply such an anchor, discussing the future direction of Supply Chain Management. This presentation will cover those forces that will shape the Supply Chain of the Future, key elements of the future Supply Chain, tools that will be used to manage the future Supply Chain, and skills that future Supply Chain Managers will be required to master.

This Webinar will be an extension of the October 24th PDM. If you missed the October 26 PDM, do not miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into the machinations that will form the 2017Supply Chain landscape in the years to come.
