Supply Chain Matters will be again out on the road this week.  Tomorrow we are off to Baltimore to attend the Supply Chain Council’s annual conference, Supply Chain World North America which is being held on Wednesday and Thursday.

This particular conference was on a bit of a hiatus during the global recession years of 2009-2010, and is now back.  This year’s theme of Building Supply Chain Capabilities for Future Success was designed to help attendees to focus and discuss the appropriate global supply chain business process strategies in this post-recessionary economy.  There is a great line-up of supply chain executive and other speakers speaking on very timely topics, with lots of opportunities for networking.

This author will be facilitating the Pundits and Influencers Panel Discussion being held on Thursday.  This year, the conference planning committee elected to alter the traditional industry analyst panel to include a broader lens on global supply chains.  We have assembled a panel consisting of influential industry analysts, consultants, influencers and of course, bloggers.

Readers can look forward to subsequent Supply Chain Matters commentaries reflecting on the conference as well as our panel discussion, so please keep this destination on your browser favorites listing.
