That blockchain, big data and AI form the basis for strategic action is no new insight. For these megatrends, plus sustainable management or sustainable culture and mindsets, are critical factors in success, which businesses need to approach holistically. Supply-chain managers and those in charge of operations are confronted by the challenge of harmonising diverse internal and internal interfaces and of reorienting their departments in the entrepreneurial context.
Only brains and experience are no longer enough to master new processes. The change which has taken place in management, in modes of thought and culture must be considered from the angle of industrial psychology. The international supply-chain meeting “EXCHAiNGE – The Supply Chainers’ Community” will provide a running accompaniment to the work of the principal players, trigger discussions and provide examples of solutions. An established, cross-sector networking platform, over two days it will provide designers and innovators in the supply chain with exciting accounts drawn from actual experience, actively involving its participants, and discussing disruption, new business models and modes of thought.
