1:05 PM - 2:00 PM Supply Chain Project Management Connection Points

Wilma Flanagan, NexInfo

With supply chain planning continuing to increase in complexity, being able to manage this complexity is essential to achieve business growth and productivity. Business factors contributing to this complexity include: 

  • Geographical spread of customers and suppliers
  • Risk & security considerations 
  • Changing regulatory and compliance mandates
  • Increased customer expectations for shortened lead times
  • Increased number of players involved

The common thread of all these factors is the number of connection points between suppliers and customers.  This session will explore what is meant by focusing on connection points, how successful companies manage these connection points and the different types of project management methodologies used.
