Supply Chain World - North America
2012 Supply Chain World North America Overview
This year's theme was Taking Supply Chains to the Next Level: A Shift to Integrative Thinking
Many organizations and supply networks are still mired in hierarchical, fragmented, and top-down approaches to supply chain management. Now firmly established as a strategic necessity, successful supply chain management requires a fully integrative approach: employees, processes, technology, functions, and even supply network partners need to be fully aligned and synchronized in order to build capability and thereby gain sustainable competitive advantage.
Organizational approaches need to move to where there is north-south goal alignment but a focus on east-west process performance. This year's conference addressed these issues with concentrations on the sub-themes detailed above, and included practical case-based examples of SCOR application.
Held at the Hyatt Regency Miami, the conference featured keynote speakers Donald Wirth of EI DuPont & Nemours Company and Dr. Steven A. Melynk of Michigan State University. The speakers offered insightful learning opportunities, with the conference providing ample time for attendees to discuss supply chain issues and trends with peers.
