Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference

The recent volatility of the global economy has had deep and lasting effects on the supply chain, making increased levels of efficiency and agility more important than ever before. Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference 2012 is designed to provide senior supply chain executives with the insights, tools and relationships today’s complex business environment demands.

Squeezed between recession and recovery, supply chain executives need a new set of fundamentals to achieve optimal efficiency and agility in their networks. From advanced sales & operations planning (S&OP), to sustainability strategies and innovative approaches to talent management, executives have new tools at their disposal to achieve supply chain excellence. And none too soon, as global commodity and materials costs are rising much more rapidly than consumers’ willingness and ability to pay higher prices. The result: a further squeeze on already strained supply chains.

Over two days, the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference will cover all that and much more. Gartner analyst-led sessions, case studies and roundtables aimed at sharing best practices, will leave you with a deeper understanding of the success factors and pitfalls to avoid on your journey to supply chain excellence.

Hot topics to be covered include demand-driven value networks, manufacturing excellence, supply chain risk mitigation, sustainability and inventory optimisation.
