The Supply Chain Management Review, one of the leading practitioner journals in the field of supply chain, is hosting their first ever conference in November at the Rosemount Hilton at O’Hare Airport in Chicago. The conference, titled Supply Chain Outlook promises to be an exciting event, with many leading speakers and academics attending. I look forward to hearing what my former colleague from Michigan State, Steve Melnyk, is up to these days!
I will be delivering a session on the Value of Procurement, as part of the noise we’re creating around the new book “The Procurement Value Proposition“. As part of this promotion, I recently did an interview on what I plan on covering at this event. The interview is posted on the SCMR website. It’s the golden age of procurement – so take advantage of the opportunities!
