    Industry 4.0 | Supply Chain Digitization

    The future has a funny way of becoming the present sooner than we think. In the Supply Management profession, we are undergoing a seismic rethink as we navigate the early 2020s. One thing is certain, our supply chain data is changing more frequently and growing more quickly than in the prior decade.

    Forward thinking leaders are left with two paths forward, hire more people or get more productive.

    Supply chain digitization of our offline data offers a glimmer of hope to take back control of our days and get more done. However, a deluge of new jargon from Industry 4.0 to AI has seemingly placed out of reach this information race for many. Fortunately, we are in the early legs of a long marathon that has yet to determine winners.

    In this webinar, we will demystify the buzz words and share practical proven actions you, your team and your suppliers can take to get more flow back into your day and win the future.
