June 25th, 2019 in Dresden (Hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski)

The Supply Chain Management sector is undergoing a major metamorphosis. For a long time the distribution of roles was clear: product development, marketing and production set the tone within most organizations. They defined products and features for market success. Supply chain optimization essentially had the function of further optimizing cost structures and ensuring delivery capability. But times are changing radically and so are the boardroom conversations of Chief Supply Chain Officers. Let’s get ready.

Target audience: Chief Supply Chain Officers, Supply Chain Top Executives (SVPs & VPs), Directors Supply Chain & Procurement, Heads of Supply Chain Management/Global Sourcing from leading European companies.
