Digital Supply Chain Leadership Forum

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, 90% of Fortune 1000 companies had their Tier 2 suppliers in Wuhan. Every company suffered supply chain disruptions, some more than others because they lacked the agility to react quickly.

Companies have started the process of building digital supply chains, and the global pandemic is forcing them to accelerate plans and re-evaluate objectives to become more agile and resilient.

The DSCI team has been working since March 2020 to help companies navigate new supply chain demand. We are continuing to do so with our cornerstone event, the DSCI Executive Leadership Forum (ELF), however, it will be virtual this time.

We have designed the format carefully to reduce the Zoom-fatigue we are all experiencing, yet increase the opportunities for insightful dialog with other executives to help us gain new perspectives.

The Digital Supply Chain Leadership Forum will consist of six curated sessions held virtually from 18 to 30 January 2021. You will:

  • Learn how Data Trading & Supply Chain Talent Planning can improve performance
  • Collaborate with senior supply chain leaders
  • Customize plans to enable your organization to take action
  • Network just like you would at an in-person conference

Each session will be limited to 20 people to ensure an interactive dialog and personal networking opportunities. Every attendee will be able to create a unique experience, based on their preferences, expertise, and interests.

We are going deep

This Digital Supply Chain Leadership Forum will be focused on two main topics:

  1. Improving Supply Chain Performance through Data Trading

The DSCI Data Trading model enables data sharing with key suppliers and customers by identifying data that is low value to you, but high value to your customers and suppliers – and to systematically uncover data that will improve your supply chain performance.

Participants will be introduced to the following concepts:

  • The three stages of Data Trading: prepare, negotiate, and govern
  • The power of “Small Data" to solve a problem or improve a performance metric
  • The DSCI Data Trading simulator, a tool to identify the exact data you need, at the right level of detail and frequency
  • How to identify the data you have that is valuable to others
  • The elements of negotiating a successful data trade
  • How to structure an agreement that protects both parties.
  1. Digital Supply Chain Talent Planning

The challenge of ensuring the right talent can only be tackled with a structured approach focused on growing the talent pool by providing continuous education.

The Digital Supply Chain Talent Model consists of three main pillars: Acquire, Develop, and Integrate.

The participants in this track will be introduced to the Digital Supply Chain Talent Model, a structured approach to growing your available talent pool by providing continuous education.

We will guide participants through the process of creating a model for their company using the three pillars most relevant for their organization.

Personalized approach

Participants can choose one of these two tracts and will spend four sessions in smaller groups to get a deep understanding of the topic, hear perspectives from their peers, and create a custom plan for their company.

Additionally, there will be two general sessions for all participants, focused on quality networking and discussions on a wider set of topics, with other attendees and leading global business professionals, including Sam Palmisano, Chairman and founder of the Center for Global Enterprise (CGE) and former Chairman of IBM.
