Upcoming Webinars

The Relevance of Supply Chain to the Success of the Company

A Society & Division Webinar from The IISE LSC Division
Oct. 20, 12 p.m. EDT
Presenter: Prof. Dr. Bram Desmet

Over the past decade, supply chain management has matured from a relatively unknown concept into a fully fledged discipline. Nowadays, the supply chain triangle (service, cash, cost) should be an integral part of an organization’s strategy, since a successful balance benefits the overall business goals. During this webinar, Prof. Dr. Bram Desmet will discuss the five key concepts of the strategy-driven supply chain.
