The aftermath of the March 2011 natural disaster in Japan highlighted the importance of supply chain management (SCM) to international businesses and demonstrated that the basics of SCM need to be applied in new ways.
That message is at the heart of the fourth annual Supply Chain Management Summit to be held at Bryant University on Thursday. Aug. 25. During this day-long conference, attendees will hear from executives of some of America’s top corporations, who will discuss innovative SCM practices in the fields of technology, healthcare, aerospace and defense.
In addition to industry-specific breakout sessions, the event features a keynote presentation by author, educator and award-winning consultant Kate Vitasek, whose expertise in the field of supply chain management has earned her recognition around the world.
The deadline to register online is Aug. 20. All registrants will receive a copy of Vitasek’s new book, Vested Outsourcing: Five Rules That Will Transform Outsourcing.
