Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 02, 2016
TBM Consulting Group, a global operations management and performance optimization firm headquartered in Durham, NC, will co-host an interactive BrainWeave® Discussion at IPQC Chief Supply Chain Officer Exchange on March 9, 2015, 3:25 PM at the Hilton Rockwall in Rockwall, Texas. Featuring Jeff Leake, Managing Director, Global Supply Chain Practice of the TBM Consulting Group and Dr. James (Jim) Rappold, President and CEO of Supply Chain Sciences, the session will focus on innovative new ways to create more nimble, efficient, and competitive supply chains in an increasingly complex global environment.
“Analytical insights have little value until they are aligned with a business process, organizational capability, and proper ERP system configuration and use,” said Leake. “In our session at IPQC, we’ll explore the critical dependencies between these elements, and discuss what’s needed to generate value from supply chain analytics.”
That’s particularly important, adds Rappold, if an economic slowdown in Asia continues to impact demand and/or supply. “The question then becomes how to pivot away from potential threats before they emerge, and we need to model those solutions ahead of time. This BrainWeave session, Inventory Optimization and Improved Cash Flow through Analytics and Business Process Alignment, will help clarify what to do, and why, to stay ahead of things.”
The 60-minute roundtable will also include a discussion of cross-functional decision making in real-time and how to leverage the opportunities of changes within specific environments (oil, FOREX, global stability) with analytic cost-to-serve models. BrainWeave® Discussions are designed to encourage discussion, debate and learning in an unscripted and informal setting, and are an important part of the IPQC Chief Supply Chain Officer Exchange learning experience.
Participation in Inventory Optimization and Improved Cash Flow through Analytics and Business Process Alignment is open to all IPQC Chief Supply Chain Officer Exchange on a first-come basis.
