Today’s manufacturing environments are more complex and inter-dependent than ever before. Outsourcing and nearshoring have enabled lower labor and component costs, but have also introduced a new set of challenges for brand owners trying to manage risk and maintain control of total landed costs.

On Tuesday, February 28, join three of today’s leading supply chain practitioners—Tom Linton, SVP and CPO at Flextronics; Thomas Choi, Professor of Supply Chain Management at Arizona State University, School of Business; and Rich Becks, General Manager, High Technology at E2open—for an action-oriented conversation on managing supply chain risk by building flexibility and transparency across all tiers of your global supply chain.

In this webinar, our speakers will tackle the following questions:

How do I identify and manage disruptions that occur at my second and third-tier suppliers?
How do I build visibility, flexibility, and resiliency into my current supply chain operations?
What systems and technologies are available to equip my suppliers (and my suppliers’ suppliers) with the information needed to resolve disruptions quickly?

Tom Linton and Tom Choi are co-authors of the December 2011 Harvard Business Review article, "Don’t Let Your Supply Chain Control Your Business."

E2open will provide all attendees a complimentary copy of the HBR article in PDF format.

Who Should Attend:

Director and executive-level supply chain practitioners, including procurement, operations, planning, and IT professionals.

What if I can't attend on this date?

Archived version will be available soon after broadcast.

Register now even if you can't attend live date to receive email with on-demand link.
