- "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
