Supply Chain Physics 2: The Very Real Decision Space of Supply Chain Physics
DATE: Wednesday, December 9, 20009

About the Webinar Series: Supply Chain Physics
Today’s business environment has challenged companies and their supply chain partners to be more responsive than ever before. You must stay connected to your customers and create ways to better understand their demands; you must have visibility to their operations and the extended supply chain. Information lead times and gaps are evaporating while, in many industries, the lead times on the physical goods are increasing. Part 2 of this 3 part series webinar will summarize the concept of Supply Chain Physics from Part I on November 4, 2009. We will then formalize the Supply Chain Physics model and present other examples and cases to illustrate how the model and Laws of Supply Chain Physics can be used to enhance communication and drive empowerment.
Mark Gavoor, Managing Partner of Cadent Resources Group LLC and presenter of the webinar series states “Our first Supply Chain Physics Webinar: The Concept of Supply Chain Physics held on November 4, 2009, was such a success we could not resist having a part 2. We feel part 2 will be just as big of a success if not more that we already have Supply Chain Physics Part 3: Strategies for Communication & Improvement, scheduled for January 20, 2010”
Here are some comments from attendee's of the November 4, 2009 Supply Chain Physics Webinar.
