Supply chain orchestration: Ushering a new era of supply chain excellence

6 December 2023, Seattle 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm PDT
In partnership

Dinner Location: El Gaucho

Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Kinaxis.

To succeed in today’s landscape and beyond, supply chain leaders must look internally at their supply chain management and redefine it to promote efficiency, productivity, and to meet customer demands alongside corporate goals, while minimizing environmental impact.
Proactively addressing risks and opportunities with a comprehensive grasp of end-to-end business consequences - they need to orchestrate much more than simply manage.

Several barriers obstruct this shift. Siloed processes breed misalignment and mistrust, while outdated techniques result in sluggish and incomplete decision-making. What’s more, disconnected technology introduces data latency and discrepancies.

The solution lies in embracing a new approach; one delivering agility by bridging the planning-execution gap, promoting collaboration, and enabling swift adaptation:
- Transparency dismantles silos, establishing a shared source of truth that guides actionable insights and decision-making.
- Intelligence automates complex exceptions, fostering trust through interpretable data and human-centric AI.
Ultimately, this approach fosters trust and shared accountability across all supply chain functions and contributors, propelling your organization toward an ideal state. So, what does this entail and where do we start?
We hope to see you in Seattle!
