   The Relevant, Resourceful, Resilient Supply Chain Professional
       A 21st Century Approach for 21st Century SC Professionals

Are you constantly striving to innovate and transform your supply chain? Itís challenging, exciting and rewarding work, and we all need tools and techniques beyond our supply chain competencies in order drive continuous improvement initiatives. Those tools and techniques help us to be more effective contributors, collaborators and innovators.

  • Resourcefulness: What resources are out there to help us? What should we be contributing in return?
  • Relevance: What can we learn, what skills can we develop to keep us relevant, whether youíre just starting out or you are a seasoned, experienced professional?
  • Resilience: Innovation is risky. Whether our ideas work or not, we need to keep striving to come back and continue evolving. What gives us the mindset and energy to keep doing that?
