Since 2003, Gartner has been researching and writing about demand-driven practices, highlighting the journey companies are taking to integrate product supply and demand into a value network that remains profitable while being responsive to constant demand change. These Supply Chain Leaders represent the best of the best and have gone beyond theory to explore synergies and opportunities they hadn’t anticipated previously. Instead of focusing on cost-cutting and efficiency measures, these supply chains are focused on growth and work in cross-functional teams including marketing, sales, operations and IT to achieve their goals. In this session, panelists will describe how they got where they are today and discuss the future direction of the supply chain industry.
1. Express ways to focus on growth to move from a cost-center to a value-center.
2. Describe how to incorporate ideas from supply chain world leaders into the healthcare supply chain.
3. Formulate a plan to use consensus-building tools for collective decision-making.
