Extreme business volatility is the new normal. Old models of balancing demand and supply –or supply chain management- are no long effective. For supply chain executives, different approaches and tools are needed to master this radically altered landscape ...
“X-SCM: The New Science of Extreme Supply Chain Management,” a recently published book collaboration between the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the Supply Chain Management Center at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, brings together for the first time a range of leading experts and practitioners to explain developments in this emerging science.
This morning event, sponsored by Smith, CSCMP, and the Logistics Management Institute (LMI) will highlight some of the key findings of X-SCM and how it can help executives re-imagine and re-think their management of supply chains during these difficult times.
