Onsdag d. 05. september 2018

Kl. 13:30 - 18:00




Requirements of a great leader of supply chains today is changing dramatically:

•Market-side: Expansion into new markets and channels, explosion in product innovations and customer-targeted requirements push for new, smart ways of creating and delivering services and products
•External setting: Increasing regulation, ecofriendly behavior, Codes of Conduct, and changing tax and tariff setup constraint our options and forces us to constantly optimize in a smart, agility manner
•And internally, complex supply structures with global sourcing, advanced IT systems requiring exponential growing data pools, and a constant push for lower cost and inventory – delivered through a highly motivated and skilled team of leaders and employees – forces us to be smart about our tasks and leadership

The flow of goods, information, and cash cannot be setup optimally years and months in advance to handle every customer demand and potential fails in the value chain – even done ideally on the go, it would require too many safeguards and is too expensive. Doing operational tasks better, faster and cheaper using traditional methods is no longer good enough. We need to be predictive and foresee the future. Leverage and extend real-time insights. Focus on value creating activities, and reduce or automate the rest. Future winners of SCM rethink their way of creating and delivering right products and services to customers by applying intelligence to focus efforts and obtain knowledge to support prime decisions.

SCM is dead, long live SCM - Supply Chain Management is transforming into Smart Chain Management. We need to be smart in the strategic design of our demand and supply structures, and how we set up supply foundations that are aligned and organically can adapt to the ever changing situations in the value chain. We need to prepare our supply system to fit circumstances tactically, and be smart in our daily tasks and decisions to secure needed agility to changes. The common denominator to enable this smart formation of supply chains is data. Data and analytics in various forms and shapes. Coupled with smart leadership.

The theme of this event is SMART CHAIN MANAGEMENT.
