Rich Sherman began by introducing how companies can transform their supply chain to win. He encouraged listeners to view change as an opportunity, stressing that innovation is necessary to achieve competitive differentiation. He explored the risk/reward trade-off as he charted the steps towards successful supply chain transformation.
The webinar then explored supply chain transformation from a company that has already successfully achieved competitive advantage – Walgreens. The company’s SVP of Supply Chain and Logistics talked Rich through Walgreens’ journey towards innovation, charting their segmentation strategy, network design, cross-functional integration and strategy for the future. Finally, Reuben answered some of the audience-submitted questions.
