ASCI Lounge Update: ASCI CEO takes stance on supply chain trends

August 8, 2019

This week, ASCI CEO Ivan Imparato reinforces the critical immediacy of global best practice supply chain management knowledge across the community. Without this, he stresses, our supply chains will not be able to cope with the sophistication that new trends bring to supply chains, leaving us unable to harness their full investment and potential. 

What is global best practice supply chain knowledge? Well over 130,000 supply chain practitioners across the world say its the APICS Body Of Knowledge because they have sought out APICS Certification as baseline terminology for their organisations. Check out our latest newsletter about study with APICS here in Australia, click here.

Baseline performance is also a topic in this podcast, The State Of Supply Chain Management Report is an annual report partnering with UTS Business School, that allows us to measure our community across eight areas of supply chain management. Take the survey (you can take several sessions without losing your place) and in 25 minutes you can have a benchmark of your supply chain performance against the industry's once the report is launched at our annual conference. Take the survey here.

According to our previous podcast with international keynote, Mike Chaffins, Nikola Motor Company, our conference ASCI2019 program, compiled by our ASCI Advisory Board (corporate members), is filled with capability and technology topics to give you tools and techniques to meet skills gaps in your teams.
