Business Intelligence Architecture
June 10 - June 14, 2024
THE CONTEXT: Strategic Leadership for the 21st century.
THE FOCUS: YOU. A leader who wears many hats.
This revised program has been exclusively designed to focus on the skills and capabilities needed to succeed amid the new landscape of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity [VUCA] created by the pandemic. Using the fast fashion supply chain, and with peers, colleagues, and other leaders, consider the impacts of globalization, sustainability, SCL optimization and big data on our current supply chain and logistics landscape.
Guiding you through the strategic issues faced by logistics and supply chain professionals today, this program pushes you outside your comfort zone and challenges you to think outside the box. The goal is to become a certified P.Log: a leader who is equipped to drive innovative strategies to deal with problems creatively and proactively, to be a catalyst for a culture of change, and have the competitive edge to create and sustain value.
Join us and your peers, in person, to debate and discuss the issues and challenges facing our SCL industry. Using the fast fashion supply chain as a framework, explore risk analysis, the impact of big data, and key sustainability issues that plague organizations today. Explore the importance of shifting your own mentality from inventory optimization to network design in order to increase customer value and create an agile, adaptable supply chain that can pivot in the face of economic ebbs and flows.
The program content challenges you to examine the complexity of business and interpersonal realtionships while building on the foundation of your own experience and insight.
Anchored by daily discussions on key SCL challenges - using the fast fashion supply chain as your case study - each day provides more than information, benchmarking, or best practices.
