Supply Chain Strategy and Management

March 21-22, 2017

Overview

Led by world experts, this practice-oriented program investigates a robust MIT framework for better managing supply chains in today's rapidly changing markets. Participants will explore:

  • The next big trend in supply chain strategy, and the key skills required to be successful
  • How to better structure a company's supply-chain strategy
  • Guidelines for making strategic sourcing and make-buy decisions
  • How to integrate e-business thinking into supply chain strategy and management
  • How to blend recent developments in information systems and communication technology with sophisticated decision support systems and create a comprehensive strategy for manufacturing and logistics
  • "Clockspeed benchmarking," a tool for deriving critical business insights and management lessons from industries with the highest obsolescence rates of products, process technologies, and organizational structures (industrial "fruit flies")
  • How to assimilate sustainability into your supply chain strategy
  • Why all advantages in fast clockspeed environments are temporary

Many participants attend this program along with Developing a Leading Edge Operations Strategy.

In the past, supply chain practice has been primarily tactical, but this program presents a new and innovative approach to supply chain design, which will enable program participants to better understand:

  • The role of supply chain design in business strategy and why, if not linked, your supply chain design can undo a company's entire business strategy
  • Forces that influence supply chain structure?how supply chain structures change; how supply chain structures and industry structures overlap; and how these structures are affected by the speed of change in a given industry
  • Integrating supply chain design with product and process development
  • Connecting supply chain design with supply chain management and logistics
  • Supply chains in the age of e-business
