close Transitioning from Make vs Buy to Leveraging Core Competency

Adoption of Rising TechnologiesSiemens - Director of Procurement North America

Historically Procurement has focused on Make Vs Buy analysis based on financial advantage, looking at processes and partnering with external suppliers to bring the best value to the organization at least cost. The core/Non-core approach takes one step further looking at features and product offerings that differentiate products from the competition. It is a cross-functional approach with sales, product management, operations, and supply chain to identify core competency that provides an advantage over the competition. This holistic approach looks at the value chain for competitiveness and contribution to differentiation, based on this systematic approach is developed to expand on competency core to the business while working with partners for non-core capabilities.


Key Takeaways:

  • Moving away from traditional make vs buy analysis to holistic approach on maximizing value for the end customer
  • Develop core competency with an organization that can help differentiate your products from the competition
  • Leverage Supply market know-how to develop partners for non-core competency
  • Change the mindset from optimizing PVO to maximizing profit for the company – topline vs bottom line view

close Utilizing Technology to Elevate Modern Supply Chain and Logistics Teams

Supply Chain Strategies to Increase VisibilityFlexport - Senior Director, General Manager - SE Region

Technology in the logistics industry has the potential to transform the supply chain with structured data and achieve end-to-end visibility into all operations. However, supply chain decisions are frequently made with very fragmented data – consumers have increasingly higher demands as retailers attempt to optimize inventory and capital allocation, while having limited shipment tracking and SKU-level visibility to understand the holistic picture of their supply chain. Hear the story of how Georgia-Pacific achieved better visibility, understanding, and peace of mind in managing their supply chain through an investment in digital transformation.

Key Take-Aways

  • Retailers have to work with a logistics providers that deliver end-to-end shipment visibility, SKU-level granularity, structured data, reports, and analytics
  • Modern logistics technology can empower and elevate modern supply chain and logistics teams to achieve maximum efficiency and peace of mind.

close Leveraging Your Supply Chain to Support Refugees

Leadership and Workforce StrategiesTent Partnership for Refugees - Executive Director

This presentation will focus on the opportunity that companies – especially large multinational companies – have to support refugees by integrating them into their supply chains. The vast majority of the world’s 25.4 million refugees live in protracted displacement in low- and middle-income countries where multinational companies have strong supply-chain linkages, such as Turkey, Jordan, and Colombia. The executive director of Tent will highlight the business case for companies to do more to bring refugees into their supply chains – including the results of consumer-perception studies in the United States and Europe – and set out concrete strategies for doing so; he will be followed by a supply chain expert who will present a case study in a specific sector

close Enhancing Supplier Partnerships while Mitigating Risk

Supplier Partnership ManagementMilbank Manufacturing Company - Vice President Supply Chain

This presentation will outline how to balance and to accomplish both – partnerships and mitigating risk.


Key Takeaways:

  • Partnerships with Strategic Suppliers are critical to the business.
  • Single sourcing has risks associated.
  • Alternative suppliers should be developed to mitigate risk.

close Bridging the Value Chasm with Visibility

Supply Chain Strategies to Increase VisibilitySAP Ariba - Senior Director, Ariba for Direct (A4D)

Measuring and managing the effectiveness of strategic supply chain initiatives at all levels of an organization is necessary as everyone from the shop-floor to the top-floor can contribute significantly to material results. Complicating performance initiatives is high volumes of data and how business are constructed today since a portion of your business is outsourced and out of your control: what happens 10,000 miles away, or 100 days from now can hurt or help you. How can an organization survive and thrive from this complexity, uncertainly and unprecedented volume of data?

Key Take-Aways

  • How advanced technologies such as Machine-Learning, IIoT and Blockchain can contribute to improving supply chain performance

close Letting the Customer Guide Your End to End Supply Chain Strategy

Strategies to Increase End-to-End VisibilityCree Lighting - Vice President, Global Supply Chain

Often, a supply chain team will be driving improvement initiatives without an understanding of what the customer values and how the company is competing in the market place. The true voice of the customer can be found in the demand patterns of the product, and each product can be grouped together based on this pattern. The next step is to ensure that each element of the supply chain, starting with the supplier, and carrying on through production, logistics, and distribution, to sales, are all aligned to support the product in a uniform way and with the same strategy in mind.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand what your customer values (will pay for), and the industry in which you compete
  • Identify the segments of your business based on their demand pattern characteristics
  • How to link your Sourcing and Purchasing strategies to each product segment based on these demand patterns
  • Check out my last presentation and a couple of articles on my linked in page

close Implementing and Executing High Performance Culture

Workforce and Talent ManagementAppvion - Director of Supply Chain

I’ve deconstructed and rebuilt 3 teams in 3 separate organizations. I’ve gone through 3 phases of awareness as I’ve built the teams, from the beginning that I’ve dubbed dumb luck (new leader, new team, etc..), to leveraging the learning’s in my second team rebuild, to finally a fully thought out and strategic rebuild here at in current organization. Along the way, I’ve heard a lot of “talk” about High Performing Culture but saw very little focus on executing that narrative… it was all talk. It seems I’ve developed a foundation for building a team and culture that breeds success, high morale, high retention rates, and breeds future organizational leaders.

Key Takeaways:

  • Key elements of a High Performing Culture
  • Executing a High Performing Culture – What does it take?
  • Identifying and hiring the right fits your team

close Unleashing the Power of Reverse Logistics Through Precise Use of Data Analytics

Warehouse Management and OptimizationCook County Government - Deputy Chief, Performance Management Officer

This presentation is designed to shed light one of the most unsuspecting business operations, reverse logistics.

Key Take-Aways

  • This presentation will take a granular look at seemingly innocuous reverse logistics sub-processes and identify how they impact both OpEx and CapEx
  • It will identify best practices to extract more precise and meaningful RL data analytics
