  8. 8. AMR Research | Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference | 13 – 14 September 2010 | London, UK Conference Agenda 1 TRACK 1: Visibility In today’s hyper-connected world supply chain executives should have dramatically greater visibility to both demand and supply, yet most still cite this as a critical problem. How can supply chain executives see more clearly into the needs and buying patterns of consumers? How can they see more comprehensively into the operational requirements of channel partners or contract manufacturing partners? How can they see with greater detail into the flow of inventory from suppliers or internal plants? This track will concentrate on what leading companies are doing with technology and process to establish reliable visibility into these critical supply chain flows. Supply Chain Excellence in Emerging Markets Mitigating Supply Chain Risk to Build a Demand Entering and sustaining businesses in Driven Value Network emerging markets present their very own The risks facing global supply chains have challenges and opportunities. In this session expounded recently, ranging from product we explore the trends in the global marketplace quality failures, natural disasters and political focusing on the emerging BRIC countries unrest.

  9. 9. Visibility, Flexibility, Sustainability — Foundations for Growth Conference Agenda 2 TRACK 2: FLEXIBILITY Since no forecast is ever perfect, supply chains increasingly are expected to handle surges in demand, changes to order configurations, and sudden shifts in input costs. Of course, adding cost to achieve these higher levels of flexibility is never popular. Finding the right place to invest in new, more agile production equipment, specialized capabilities in logistics and distribution, or even strategic inventory is a complex problem. This track will deliver research and case studies on best practices in improving supply chain flexibility through technology or organizational design.

This track will focus on where sustainability is headed in terms of government oversight, costs of carbon, water, and other resources and even issues around socially responsible sourcing.
