Living on the EDGE…the CSCMP EDGE

September 12, 2019


Next week I will be traveling to Anaheim to join thousands of my Supply Chain cohorts at the CSCMP EDGE conference.  There are hundreds of conferences for the Supply Chain industry, but this is my favorite.  Full disclosure, I am a bit biased since I am a Track Chair this year.   I find immense value in the content delivered at this conference.  There is a good mixture of industry professionals as well as academia which allows for a broad perspective of what is in store for the Supply Chain industry.   It also offers a great opportunity for networking amongst our peers.  As an added bonus, I plan to meet my CSCMP mentee for the first-time face to face at the conference after over a year of phone conversations.

This year I am the co-track chair for the Supply Chain Planning and Optimization track.  I am particularly excited about this topic because it incorporates those trends that are living on the edge in terms of technology.  Many traditional supply chain models are being disrupted by customer expectations of “I wanted it yesterday”.  This affects the complete Supply Chain cycle from everything from planning to delivery. Now, more than ever, establishing a digital decisioning process to optimize your supply chain enhanced by technology is a necessity.  Our track will allow you to surpass competition through the use of new innovative approaches in to optimize your supply chain and bottom-line profit.

Come live on the EDGE with me and thousands of our Supply Chain friends!
