James Earl Jones Hosts a New "Front Page" Segment on Supply Chain Efficiency for Public Television

Share Article

A new informative segment of the popular program is being produced.

Viewers can join award-winning actor James Earl Jones as he hosts another installment of "Front Page." This upcoming episode will focus on supply chain efficiency, which includes activities, employees, information, organizations, resources, and technology that are responsible for getting products from suppliers to consumers.

Supply chain efficiency depends on several trends to help determine a company's strengths and weaknesses. These trends concern relationships between people (customer relationship management, talent management, and collaborative relationships) and relationships between data that is collected and analyzed (strategies, demand management, and driver-based metrics).

According to Forbes magazine, most companies' investments in technology have improved certain links of efficiency in the chain of supply, but economic success and customer satisfaction are short lived as a result. This means that the most efficient supply chain is likely to be the least effective. The most effective supply chain should benefit supplier and consumer, and all of the suppliers and consumers in between.

Audiences can tune in to the show to see how analyzing data, providing comprehensive workforce training, implementing effective communication, improving information sharing and visibility, and nurturing innovation can help to create a situation that satisfies suppliers and customers alike. Though the show is informative and appears on public television and PBS member stations, it is not affiliated with the Public Broadcasting Service, American Public Television, or any of their affiliates.
