Partnership connects employees to Penn State supply chain experts;
generates analytics to help leaders respond to rapidly shifting consumer demand
PHILADELPHIA, April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — CorpU, a pioneer in leadership development, today announced significant progress from a year-long partnership with Campbell Soup Company. Campbell supply chain leaders across the globe have used CorpU’s cloud-based software platform to collaborate, tap insights from supply chain experts at Penn State’s Smeal College of Business, and leverage real-time analytics to identify trends across thousands of employee interactions to break down functional silos and solve challenges more effectively.
“CorpU has been a game-changing partner as we continue our journey to transform our global supply chain,” said Daniela Vonghia, Vice President, Americas Supply Chain Business Solutions at Campbell Soup Company. “The self-paced, multi-modal learning experience engaged employees across all generations, roles, and locations. With CorpU’s collaborative, team-based approach, we can measure individual learning outcomes in terms of how much participants understood, and how likely they are to take action based on what they learned.”
On the front end, CorpU is used to foster cross-functional collaboration and learning best practices direct from faculty at Smeal College, the nation’s #1 ranked supply chain school. On the back end, CorpU employs machine learning and natural language processing to surface a dashboard of analytics to inform strategy development and execution.
Armed with real-time data, Campbell supply chain leaders identified their “network champions” — who tapped colleagues across silos, and their “network disruptors” — whose weak understanding of tasks compromised productivity. Designed to help executives anticipate challenges and make decisions, CorpU Analytics also allows business leaders to assess and iterate strategy if their workforce is struggling to execute it.
“Industry trends are increasingly driven by consumers, such that brands and retailers must use technology to optimize supply chains to satisfy many needs simultaneously,” said Alan Todd, Chief Executive Officer of CorpU. “Campbell is arming its employees with software that fosters smart collaboration, and data that gives leaders an inside view into organizational efficiency.”
CorpU is a leadership development platform that delivers workforce analytics and access to world-class experts at Harvard and MIT to global companies like Coca-Cola and Staples. Over four million professionals worldwide rely on our technology to unlock the collective genius of teams, solve complex challenges, implement new strategies, and drive quantifiable business results.
