We're more connected than ever before.

Globalization. Uncertainty. Technology. Big Data. Sustainability.

All of these make our world today, and our supply chains in particular more complex, integrated, and reliant on each other than ever before. We can no longer look at supply chains as linear, nor our relationships within them as simple or transactional.

Business Intelligence Architecture was built in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to prepare you to manage agile supply chains, able to withstand the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity that characterizes today's economies.

Join us for sessions and discussions framed around a supply chain case study and walk away with a toolkit that helps you really see every factor that plays a role in the effectiveness and resilience of your supply chain.

Next Session: June 10 - June 14, 2024
Toronto, ON

  • Knowledge of the complexities of modern-day supply chain logistics.
  • Business analytics tools and the knowledge to apply them in context, experientially.
  • Ideas on responsible SC strategies while optimizing business goals.
  • Strategic leadership and contextual intelligence capabilities.
  • An understanding of the three pillars of leadership: power, influence and action
