Through this workshop, you will examine the role of supply chain in business strategy. The supply chain is a crucial component of almost every organisation, ensuring that goods and services are delivered on time and at the right quality and cost. Leaders in the Supply Chain function, and those who work closely wth them, need to have a strategic view of how their work contributes to overall success for their customers. Is supply chain simply a cost of doing business or does it have a greater part to play? Well known organisations such as Apple and Zara have made the supply chain an essential component of their overall business strategy. In this workshop, you will consider the strategy for your own supply chain and the level at which it contributes, and should contribute, to your overall business goals.

Is it right for me?
This workshop is for anyone who has a role in determining supply chain strategy, or who engages with supply chain issues and development at a strategic level. You will create your own proposals for enhancing the supply chain and, through doing this, serve your customers better and add value and strategic focus to your organisation.
