8:30-9:00am Arrival & Registration
9:00-9:10am Welcome Address
9:15-10:00 Leverage Your Supply Chain to Deliver Superior Financial Results
Operational experts often extol the contributions of a high-performing supply chain to achieving superior financial results. Too often they fail to explain how such a supply chain is designed, implemented, managed and measured within existing resource constraints. Supply Chain Council Chapter Director, Alyda le Hane, will clearly articulate the “knobs and levers” that connect superior supply chain performance to the bottom line.

In recent years Supply Chain Council has initiated a number of research projects that examine and articulate the relationship between supply chain performance and overall enterprise performance. Key areas of focus include.
  • Critical supply-chain KPIs and the impact on business outcomes
  • Supply chain best practices and P&L outcomes
  • Organizational process maturity and key financial indicators
  • Negative supply-chain events and the impact on share value
  • The connections between revenue growth and SCOR, lean manufacturing and Six Sigma.

10:05-11:05 Meeting the Defense Needs of the Future with a Reliable Supply Chain
This session will explore how Babcock's Marine Division, a supplier of support services to the U.K. Ministry of Defense, utilized the SCOR model to uncover future supply chain capability gaps. The diagnostic team's goal was to close the identified gaps before the capability was required. By proactively delivering highly reliable service, Babcock has improved the availability of submarines and warships despite tighter budgets. This presentation will walk the attendee through the process of applying the SCOR model for this purpose and review the detailed benefits and lessons learned.

11:10-12:10pm SCOR – Linking Strategy and Operations
Organisations in control of their Supply Chain have achieved this state not just because they have a Supply Chain strategy, but because that strategy is embedded throughout the organisation from strategic performance management down to transactional and operational conformance.

This presentation, by Sean Culey the head of a specialised business improvement consultancy, will discuss how the Supply Chain Council’s SCOR model can be used to help companies:
  • Determine the most appropriate strategy for their Supply Chain
  • Establish the gap between current and desired performance levels
  • Create performance and conformance reports and an integrated Scoreboard
  • Enable the rapid identification of where the bottlenecks lie within your supply chain
  • Ensure individual Supply Chain process activities, metrics and behaviours are integrated across process areas and aligned to the goals of the organisation
