Addressing Global Challenges in High Performance Supply Chains

This year Supply Chain Council will tour the globe in 2013 to share insights gleaned from the year’s global events and also to share the latest updates in SCC development with regional supply chain leaders.   SCOR® 11 has just been released and a standard system for managing global supply chains using SCOR - M4SC - is being introduced worldwide.  If you are not familiar with the global standard SCOR (Supply Chain Operations Reference model), go here.

The briefings are scheduled to be quick, convenient and almost no cost to you – not to miss!

Executive Director Joseph Francis, Supply Chain Council, United States—one of the world's most popular speakers on supply chain management – will be the speaker for all locations.  You may find his brief biography below the schedule. 

During the first hour, key elements of high performing supply chains in successful global organizations will be shared. A hands-on workshop will follow for those who have time to stay for another hour.  This time will be used to briefly explore the next evolution of using SCOR for managing supply chains - M4SC.  In the workshop, attendees will explore how to develop a supply chain strategy for part of your supply chain, including a supply chain performance SCORcard with a set of performance requirements that you can leverage in the coming business year.
