Core Themes in the Supply Chain Revolution
New School Supply Chain
The “we’ve always done it this way” operating model is over. Supply chain has never had a bigger seat at the table. Advances in supply chain technology, data science, corporate social responsibility create opportunities like no other decade in our existence to building a new global economy that is circular. This requires a “new school” shift that puts the customer experience, supply chains with purpose, and leadership front and center.
Corporate Sustainability isn't philanthropy. We help companies understand supply chains are a conduit for social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and the win-win of ' doing well and doing good" to transform the world we share.
Circular Economy & Circular Thinking
We are leaving value on the table and take-make-waste, or linear economy, is costing our planet and our supply chains billions in value leakage annually. The Supply Chain Revolution embraces circularity, making fiscal sense of shifting toward regenerative, restorative processes and designing for zero waste in end-to-end supply chain orchestration.
Sustainable Development & the SDGs
This is the decade of action. Propelled by purpose, new school leaders understand the inter-connectivity of industrial, technological, environmental and human systems. Sustainable Development and Supply Chains are a conduit to realizing many of the SDGs by 2030.
Diversity & Inclusion
The way we lead, hire, think, design, connect, share in communities of practice is shifting. New diversity includes challenging paradigms for inclusion by transforming culture, developing multi-disciplinary teams, and encouraging diversity, divergence, and radical collaboration.
Leading & Influencing Change
The ability to lead in Supply Chain 5.0, digitalization, the future of work, and transition toward sustainable, circular models requires new-school leadership. Themes include headspace, modus operandi, stewardship, and understanding new impacts in transformation and beyond.
