CIPS NE Branch - Supply chain remodeling (Process & case studies)


Events of a global scale affect supply chains and organizations on a constant basis. In order to counter its effects and mitigate risks, organizations continually embark on a process of supply chain remodeling to improve competitive advantage, incorporate new technology or to reduce overall costs.
But what do organizations need to consider while remodeling their supply chains? Some key questions ponder around:

• What is the magnitude of anticipated potential cost savings?
• What would be the likely impact on customer service?
• What are the resource requirements to execute the new strategy?
• How do we manage change internally and externally?

Find answers to all these C-level questions by attending our webinar which addresses these considerations.
