Next Generation Supply Chains- Leadership and Change for Business Success


Next Generation Supply Chains- Leadership and Change for Business Success

There are key challenges in integrating Supply Chain Strategy with Business Strategy, and in the successful implementation of strategic change, with research showing that companies face only a 50:50 chance of success.

There are clear key factors that impact on successful Supply Chain strategic change and these need to be taken up in the Board Rooms of those businesses that want to succeed in leveraging Supply Chain for business advantage in a competitive market place.

This session will focus on how we can implement next-generation supply chains through people and culture. It will focus on the innovative ways in which organisations can leverage the supply chain value with emphasis on top management leadership, cross-functional coordination and collaboration in the context of new and mature marketplaces. By integrating ideas from the latest research with best practices, delegates will understand how supply chain can deliver and indeed influence the strategic objectives of the business, and ensure successful implementation to drive forward market success.

A case study demonstrates how the barriers to change can be overcome and management support can be harnessed to address cultural issues of change across the internal and extended supply chain. In particular how Supply Chain can be used to add value in order to grow revenue and protect market share.

Delegates will learn:


  • A better understanding of the real business benefits and risks of moving towards world class Supply Chain excellence.
  • Insight into the practical issues faced by supply chain and business leaders, together with an appreciation of the new leadership skill sets required.
  • An understanding of the practical action areas for business focus when developing and implementing strategic change in Supply Chain.
