Every customer makes a “Leap of Faith” when they place an order with a company. “Look before you Leap” is a cautionary action taken by most consumers as they do not want to “Fasten their Seatbelts” and be taken for a ride by a company’s supply chain management team. It is widely agreed that many of today’s supply chains are benefiting from the results of innovation and transformation. The beneficiaries include customers and consumers of all types and trading partners in ecosystems that facilitate the creation of value through meaningful and effective collaboration and alignment. This presentation will explore some of the reasons that help to explain the rise in the strategic importance of supply chain capabilities, and will highlight new technologies and approaches that will continue the rise to success. Both shippers and third-party service providers can now “Leap over the Hurdles” that caused customers to fasten their belts in anticipation of poor service. To further guarantee this success developing future supply chain talent is a high priority for our educational institutions and participating organizations in today’s supply chains. Let’s Fasten our Seatbelts and take a Leap of Faith! Keynote Speaker: Dr. C. John Langley, from Penn State University. He is known for his annual Third-Party Logistics Study. 3PL’s are one of the big reasons now that customers choose to take a ”leap of faith”. Dr. Langley is a Clinical professor, Supply Chain Information Systems and Director of Development, Center for Supply Chain Research® at Smeal College of Business at The Pennsylvania State University. He has also worked as SCL Professor of Supply Chain Management at Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute and was the Dove Distinguished Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management at the University of Tennessee. In addition, he is an entrepreneur being the owner of a professional Ice hockey team called the Knoxville Ice Bears located in Knoxville, TN.
