2019 Supply Chain Think Tank Event: The Future of Supply Chain in the Digital Era

New York, NY - Jan 30, 2019

Overview

The future of supply chain is in the hands of the digital revolution. As digital transformation sweeps across all industries, organizations are aiming to modernize their strategies for the future of supply chain management. In order to keep up with trends, leaders must now take control of innovation, implement best practices, and evolve their role to increase operational efficiency, but how are they doing it? With new technology at the forefront of the digital transformation initiative, executives can lead the charge and develop their strategies to produce successful outcomes that will continue to drive the business forward.

  • Implementing blockchain to streamline supply chain efforts 
  • Exploring the effects of new technology on supply chain processes such as: inventory management, sourcing, and omni-channel revenue management 
  • Discovering where leaders are on the supply chain strategy life-cycle and how they plan to progress into 2019 and beyond 
  • Diving into current challenges faced when implementing new technology and how leaders are overcoming them
