Supply Chain practitioners have the broadest context as professionals!
Last year we talked about your adding sustainable practices to your charter. Then RFID was added to the charter. RFID adoption and deployment strategies continue to expand, with more to come. How does the customer think? And more—preparing for unexpected events—disaster planning such as pandemics, tsunamis, hurricanes, and earthquakes. And protecting the security of the chain and the quality of the product from counterfeiters!
Some of these challenges are not just unexpected, but truly unwelcome; whereas others are based on the growing sophistication of the people and the processes of running a global network. Improving Performance, superior information management are all part of the game.
This issue of Parallax View provides you some insights into all these categories. It makes you think about—who am I as a supply chain professional? What skills do I need to lead in this increasing complex world? To answer that, we will dedicate the next few issues of the magazine—plus also dedicate the agenda of Supply Chain- It’s a Whole New Game—Parallax Views 2006, our conference in Bermuda.
Join us for some deep thinking, inspiration and fun in Bermuda in November…and enjoy reading.
