2023 Award of Excellence — Corporate Transformation

This award recognizes an organization that brings fundamental, meaningful transformation that elevates the business; drives effective product offerings, reduces risk, advances supply chain performance, and achieves sustainable results. Keysight Technologies is honored for the corporation’s resilient equipment operating model, which positioned it as a leader in supply chain resilience and efficiency. The corporation was able to achieve significant cost savings, prove its commitment to continuous improvement and enhanced customer satisfaction by adopting ASCM global standards, sharing the body of knowledge with key team members and tapping into the power of the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model.

2023 Award of Excellence — Learning and Development

This award recognizes an organization’s commitment to productivity and advancement based on the ongoing application of educational concepts, competencies and best practices from ASCM performance-driven team training and the APICS body of knowledge.
