This commentary is a reminder to readers who are members of Accenture’s Supply Chain Management Academy.

Next week, I will be delivering the second of a two-part community education series of webinars on the evolving hot topic of Supply Chain Control Towers (SCCT).

In the Part One- Foundations webinar I addressed the fundamental strategic changes occurring across global supply chains, along with their implications for decision-making.  Part Two of this education series dives deeper into the people, process and technology capabilities to consider in preparing for a Supply Chain Control Tower initiative along with some guidelines for designing initiatives within industry supply chains.

This series is exclusively available to members of the Accenture Academy. Readers who are Accenture Academy Live members, especially those who attended the Part One webinar, are encouraged to register for Part Two which is scheduled for Tuesday, December 4.

Supply Chain Matters readers can also review and access some of these SCCT concepts by clicking on supply chain control tower in our listing of Topics in the right-hand panel. I will be summarizing some of the key takeaways from this series in a Supply Chain Matters commentary later next week.
