New Webcast Event to Focus on Supply Chain Productivity
"Virtual Conference" sponsored by Supply Chain Management Review and Logistics Management magazines will examine tools and techniques to improve productivity in transportation, warehousing, logisitics, and labor management.
We have just put the finishing touches on our latest “Virtual Conference” webcast, a joint project of SCMR and our sister publication Logistics Management. This event will go live on November 18 and you can register—free of charge—by going to our web site.
This will be the last of these conferences for the year, and we think it will rate as one of very best. We managed to assemble a cast of experts who will focus on key aspects of supply chain productivity—and tell how to improve each one. The Virtual Conference will feature practical workshops on topics that can help you start making a positive impact on productivity right away.
Here’s just a sample of the educational sessions on tap:
• How to evaluate and select a TMS system. Our featured panelist is Adrian Gonzalez, one of the foremost authorities on transportation management systems and a research director at ARC Advisory Group. In addition to telling what to look for in a TMS, Adrian will give valuable tips on how to determine which one is right for you.
• Using technology to improve warehouse operations. You’ll hear practical tips from experts on how WMS and related technologies can boost overall warehouse and D.C. productivity.
• “Best Practices” for managing your most important resource—people. Learn advanced labor management techniques that lead to a more productive and more satisfied workforce.
Plus, our featured speaker, John Gattorna, will speak on the topic, “Want a Great Supply Chain? Focus on Your People.” John is an experienced practitioner, consultant, and educator who just released his new book Dynamic Supply Chain: Delivering Value Through People.
So please consider joining us for this last Virtual Conference of year. I’m sure you’ll find it a worthwhile investment of your time.
