Finance is widely recognized as the language of business – yet supply chain managers have not fully learned how to communicate the impact of their function in financial terms. This workshop will show how supply chain actions affect the income statement and balance sheet – two key financial statements – and how supply chain managers can explain their decisions in the language of finance. The workshop will include exercises that challenge the participants to make critical investments in working capital, focusing on four core supply chain elements:  inventory, capital operating equipment, payable...

Companies have invested substantial amounts of money and valuable managerial time in developing omni-channel supply chains. Although they have achieved some success, the vision of a seamless service that enables customers to shop via any channel or device and receive purchases on time at their chosen locations, has yet to be fully realized. The challenges of adding new capabilities, and connecting or modifying existing systems, have proved more formidable than generally anticipated.

Supply chain tracing, tracking, transparency, visibility, and a myriad of other terms are in play around the central goal of identifying and following the history, distribution, place, and use of materials, parts and products. This has become especially important in the ability to implement and verify sustainability within the supply chain in the areas of labor and the environment. But the motivations behind traceability also include improving operational efficiencies, ensuring product quality, and reducing supply chain risks. Beyond internal motivations for traceability, there are also growin...

Supply chain leaders recognize the importance of resilience in protecting their supply chains against disruptions and market volatility. Having a resilient supply chain has proven to be a critical business enabler, often making the difference between market success and business failure. The increasing number of supply chain resilience investment options has made it easier for leaders to achieve resiliency. However, a general lack of guidance and inadequate information on how to quantify resilience, can make it difficult for leaders to take a logical, data-driven approach when making supply cha...

Port capacity and especially free port capacity can play a crucial role in the competition struggle between ports.

Most infrastructure capacity expansion has been financed by public money. We want to have a closer look at whether and in what way p...
