Latest ResourceThird Party Risk: Too Close for Comfort You’ve got a handle on many of the potential supply chain "disrupters" that can paralyze your business. But the real risk is embedded in areas you may have overlooked.
In the past two years, the Annual Supply Chain Directors’ Conferences were held at UT Dallas and Arizona State Universities. Over 75 attendees from 50+ supply chain programs across the United States enjoyed networking and discussing the present and the future of their supply chain programs with leaders from both academia and industry.
Joel Sutherland, Managing Director, Supply Chain Management Institute, notes that more than 60 people from 45 universities have registered for this year’s event.
“Space is limited so make sure you register soon and reserve your room,” he says. ”Our Third Annual SCM Directors’ Conference will be held February 12-14, 2014 at the University of San Diego campus in partnership with UT Dallas and Gartner.”
The theme of our discussions this year is “Success Through Collaboration: Elevating the SCM Discipline and Supporting its Global Growth.”
The intent of this conference, adds Sutherland, is to help supply chain program directors, assistant/associate deans and center managers in developing, enhancing and managing different aspects of their supply chain programs and curriculum.
