Please join us for this strategic supply chain event. This summit will be the first of a three-part series, and will set the corporate leadership context for the two technical events to follow. At this summit, we will discuss:
• Leadership’s role in developing and implementing an effective supply chain strategy that benefits and preserves stakeholders’ interests under volatile conditions
• The impact of supply chain management risk due political, economic and technological factors along with natural disasters on global supply chain performance.
• Quantifying the value of supply chain best practices on your bottom line
• Hear leading experts connect supply chain risks to national security, and how leadership is the most important risk mitigation tool.
• Meet other corporate executives to understand how they are approaching supply chain initiatives from the C-Suite and measuring the impact to their business bottom line.
• Understand how to build the business case for developing a comprehensive supply chain strategy, to manage risk exposure while harvesting value.
• Hear how others have experienced impact to their business operations and how the true costs (and cost avoidance) came from unexpected areas.
Who Should Attend:
• CEOs, COOs, Presidents, General Managers, Business Leaders, Strategic Planners, Operations Managers, and Purchasing Managers of companies that participate in supply chains, be it at the top, the bottom or middle.
• Corporate leaders who need to build the business case for a comprehensive supply chain strategy, quantify risk exposure, and quantify the return on investments in more effective supply chain management.
• Senior managers who need to think strategically about the needs of their customers, their suppliers, and their own operations, and who can create actionable results by sending the right supporting team members to the subsequent implementation-oriented events.
NDIA’s Supply Chain Series:
Supply chain associations focus on developing best practices that are highly beneficial to supply chain professionals. NDIA’s supply chain series focuses particularly on the supply chain where it intersects with national security.NDIA members are concerned about reforming evolving government regulations and strengthening industrial defense supply
chains. All of these activities impact a company’s supply chain processes and practices.
NDIA’s supply chain series will clearly articulate the value of supply chain management in national security, which is enhanced by better managing supply chains across the entire defense industrial base.
This first event, Strategies for Creating Value amid Volatility, is planned to give senior leadership the high-level information needed to create an organizational supply chain strategy that benefits both their business and national security.
The second event, Investing in Risk Management, is planned to give supply chain professionals, purchasing managers, and cost analysts insight to the types of risk found in supply chains for national defense products, how this risk impacts the value and economics of business and national security, and how this risk can be managed to deliver better performance.
The third event, Defeating the Threats, is planned to give supply chain professionals, program managers, and systems engineers an understanding of how decisions made in the early stages of a program can mitigate or avoid threats to product performance and delivery, as well as national security threats that could be embedded in their products through supply chain manipulation.
