close The Journey to Smart Supply Chain: Transform Manufacturing to Reach Entirely New Levels of Operational Excellence

Supply Chain Strategies & LeadershipHitachi Consulting - Senior Vice President, Practice Lead

The rise of the Internet of Things has seen a tidal wave of data unleashed into the supply chain. Connected devices are now everywhere—from wearables on the warehouse floor to temperature monitors in shipping containers.

close Retaining Great Employees in a Competitive Talent Market

Workforce and Talent ManagementBogen Communications - Director, Facility and Warehouse Operations

As the market for talented employees continues to tighten, company leaders must develop creative ways to keep great employees (and even the good ones) from leaving. Higher pay helps; but do you really want a team made up of people who are “just here for the money?” Instead, understand why people leave, create a culture that develops talent, and find ways to align individual and organizational goals. You will soon find yourself with a happy team that drives success on their own.

Key Take-Aways: 

  • Understanding why people leave
  • Creating a culture that develops talent
  • Aligning individual and organizational values and goals

close Visibility in a Multi-Node supply chain

Supply Chain Strategies to Increase VisibilitySouthwire - Vice President Materials Management and Transportation

We went thru a project last year to provide a custom view of our supply chain for a part number. The end result is a real time view of inventory, time supply, intransit, production and design for the entire supply chain on one custom screen in SAP. During this presentation, I will take you through our journey to reach successful visibility.

Key Take-Aways: 

  • One page visibility of a part for the entire supply chain
  • Ability to drill into a variety of detail from that view
  • This is used as a talking point to eliminate any confusion between groups
  • We use a very similar custom logic to do real time allocation of product between DCs served by a plant

close Boost Efficiency in the Contract Lifecycle Management

Rodan + Fields - Director Indirect Sourcing and Procurement

The concept of Enterprise Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) has been around for a while but who is seeing efficiency gains? Contracts are ground zero for spend optimization and mitigating risk.

We will discuss creating the business case to get your tool implemented, building internal processes, architect the tool, and how to leverage AI efficiently.

Key Take-Aways

  • Innovative contract and negotiation methodologies
  • My paper or yours? How to collaborate and close faster with model clauses

close Moving from Customer Service to Customer Experience

Mars Food - Director Supply Chain & Logistics

Customer metrics are the foundation of the customer relationship, but a customers’ EXPERIENCE is very personal. If you focus only on metrics, you may miss a big piece of what customers really need. During the presentation,  I will share how easy-to-apply techniques helped uncover what customers really needed.

Key Take-Aways

  • Metrics are foundational, but may cause you to miss key opportunities to drive the customer relationship
  • People (Suppliers) interact with People (Customers) not metrics and KPIs
  • Sometimes customers recognize there is a problem, but are not able to articulate what they really need. These techniques will help uncover that and drive personal benefits

close Implementing E-Sourcing System to Optimize Cost Savings

Strategic Sourcing & Supplier PartnershipsON Semiconductor - GSCO Strategic Sourcing Director

E-sourcing tools have been available now for well over a decade and have continued to improve in usability and flexibility, yet they still remain commonly misunderstood and misrepresented by many in the industry.  In this session we will explore the advantages of having an E-sourcing process as part of your overall Procurement toolkit as well as the challenges of implementing a system on a global scale.  In addition we will give an overview of some of the better known systems out there and where some companies seem to excel in this space but overall recognizing that no system is one size fits all and you will need to develop a process to evaluate which tool best suits your company culture, your Supplier Relationship Management approach and ultimately your budget.

Key Take-Aways

  • E-Sourcing is not push button implementation
  • E-Sourcing is not just reverse auctions, it doesn’t have to become a tool that destroys supplier relationships
  • E-Sourcing implementation needs a PM and comprehensive training
  • E-Sourcing has to be from encouraged and supported from the top down
  • Multiple suppliers offer options, your evaluation process should be customized to your needs, maturity and budget
