Three Themes That Will Impact Supply Chain Leaders Now and In The Future

Researchers at Penn State University’s 26-year-old Center for Supply Chain Research™ (CSCR™) say the following three themes are creating gaps in supply chain leadership capabilities and must be addressed with urgency in 2018.

  1. Disruptive Technologies are Changing the Game. New technologies represent an enormous opportunity to carve out a competitive advantage but will upend supply chains and introduce new uncertainties and risks.
  2. Extreme Talent Shortages Require a Plan. Organizations will struggle to recruit, retain and grow supply chain talent in light of a 6-to-1 gap – six job openings for every qualified candidate.
  3. Collaboration and Networks are Required. The next wave of supply chain performance improvement can only come if supply chain leaders learn to collaborate across functional silos and beyond company boundaries.

How companies address these themes will make the difference between winners and losers as companies compete supply chain vs. supply chain.

Steve Tracey, executive director for the Center for Supply Chain Research™ (CSCR™) and Penn State Executive Programs leads CorpU’s Smarter Growth Series presentation to share insights on:

  • Game-changing technologies shaping the future of intelligent, data-driven supply chains
  • How supply chain teams can address talent shortages
  • Why future supply chain improvements will require teams to collaborate across functional silos
