About the Program

Supply chain management is the cornerstone and basis of every company’s operations, and determines success in the marketplace. Supply Chain Costs are one of the critical elements in the management and structure of the supply chain – they range from 50% to 80% and more of the entire costs of the company. Managing, maintaining and reducing these costs are, therefore, one of the key strategic imperative of the company. At Rady’s Institute for Supply Excellence and Innovation (ISEI), we integrate analytics, technology and innovation with the end-to-end supply chain, to understand total costs, liquidity, customer satisfaction, and the mitigation of risk.

In Next Gen: Supply Chain Management program, participants will learn best current practices from the world-renowned industry experts who have been working at companies like Apple, Google, Flex, LG Electronics, IBM, BP and Shell. Speakers include Tom Linton, Paul Massih, Helen Wang and Jimmy Anklesaria, leading industry experts who served as chief supply chain officers and chief procurement officers. Participants will also learn latest industry trends, technologies and risks, such as cybersecurity and blockchain, and how analytics can impact the field of supply chain management.
