Supply Chain Matters would like to call reader attention to a soon to be published added podcast episode.


There is a growing belief that existing supply chain and talent management processes and technology need a rethink. The evolution of technology, the growing complexity and performance expectations from supply chains are driving the need to have people who understand data and analytics from multiple angles including planning, execution, product management and customer service level performance.

This blog has provided a series of prior commentaries focused on the very important topic of supply chain talent recruitment, retention and re-skilling. Additionally, our research arm, The Ferrari Consulting and Research Group has published a Part One research advisory in collaboration with Cloud based enterprise software provider Oracle: Your Workforce- The Weakest Link in the Supply Chain, The Importance of Supply Chain and Human Resources Strategy Alignment for Talent Recruitment and Retention

In this vein, we alert our Supply Chain Matters readers to an upcoming podcast episode titled: Needs for More Diverse Supply Chain Talent from the Lens of Technology.

We believed that it would be helpful to multi-industry supply chain podcast audience that conversation and insights relative to talent management from the lens of an enterprise technology provider would have value. The perspective is that of a provider that has interacted with various global based business and supply chain management teams on enabling their digital transformation efforts and the learning that have been acquired before, during and post technology transformation.

Our invited guest in this podcast conversation is Terri Hiskey, Vice President of SCM Product Marketing for Oracle. She provides a perspective of over 20 years of technology marketing experience focused on helping customers efficiently design, build and service innovative technology products.

Our podcast conversation focuses on what are key technical and organizational skill traits that organizations should be focusing on to assure success in their digital transformation efforts.

Further discussed are common mistakes from a skills perspective that are sometimes encountered, including the assimilation of technology savvy professionals seeking an organization that can provide both challenge as well as career growth. Included is discussion on the interaction of inter-generational and diverse work teams, along with the power and dynamics of outside-in driven change.

Terri additionally shares highlights from her recently authored Supply Chain Management Review article on why supply chain organizations should consider the recruiting of experienced gamers and tapping the hidden market of skills that are not generally explored by businesses.

This is an informative and timely conversation, and it will be initially available on the Supply Chain Matters platform next Tuesday, April 12.

Make a note in your calendars to check back on Tuesday and do stay tuned.
