Digital supply chain management - learning to create value

During your 5 days at the IMD campus, you focus on the opportunities created by digitization, by new consumer segments and integrated technologies and explore how to get more value from your supply chain and improve profits. You look at cost efficiencies that you can make, see ways to get faster, more flexible, to stay ahead of competitors and meet changing consumer expectations.

You explore solutions based on the following critical themes:

  • Develop a digitization strategy which embeds the latest technologies
  • Align your supply chain with business strategy
  • Leverage information flows and customer insights
  • Use latest business analytics to better forecast
  • Manage cross-functional coordination and execution
  • Roll out your supply chain across geographies
  • Optimize a global supply-chain portfolio
  • Design a value-centered “omnichain”
  • Lead your supply chain transformation

Be prepared for intense learning and interaction with your industry peers and faculty members. You will apply the frameworks to your own company, analyze international case studies, carry out a business simulation, apply benchmarking and mental mapping to conceptualize your supply chain. Throughout the week you will engage in wide‑ranging, challenging discussions and receive dynamic feedback. You will also examine best practices from some of the world’s most successful global companies.

By the end of the program, you will have gained invaluable knowledge of leading-edge practices from the digital world that can improve your growth, flexibility, speed, and efficiency. This means you can experience your supply chain as a truly holistic business function which has moved from a cost center to a business driver.
