2030 is not far off, and many companies are unprepared for the evolution of technology, talent, and globalization that will shape this future. We want to help you imagine Supply Chain 2030 at the 4th annual Supply Chain Insights Global Summit and plan for your future.  

We've got a speaker lineup that will challenge, inspire, motivate and drive you to think about 
aligning for excellence and designing the road map for your future. From presentations to networking, the Global Summit is designed to foster innovative thought and create connections to drive the next generation of supply chain excellence.  We invite you to join us at The Phoenician in Scottsdale, AZ this September 7-9 to hear directly from the experts how they have altered their supply chain performance and became leaders in the race for Supply Chain 2030. 

New Reports

Deep research studies. Open Content research. We bring you insights first.  At Supply Chain Insights we write reports to help supply chain leaders maximize value in their journey for supply chain excellence. This month we're sharing two Supply Chain Metrics That Matter reports that detail the path supply chains have taken in the pursuit of becoming more aligned, faster, more agile and proactive, and how the path has led them to be more controlled and global.

The reports, Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on Household Products and Beauty and Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on the Chemical, and Oil & Gas Industries, tell you whose suppy chain did the best for 2009-2015 and how they did it. Please join us in celebrating the winners and finalists.

Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on the Household Products and Beauty


Within the Household Products and Beauty industries, companies are stuck on the critical metrics that drive value. Most regressed in delivering improvement on the Supply Chain Metrics That Matter despite a pervasive industry belief that Household Products and Beauty companies implemented new technologies, and evolved processes to drive improved balance sheet results. Based on the Supply Chains to Admire methodology for 2016, Clorox is a winner in the Household Products industry, and L'Oreal is a winner in the Beauty industry, with Estée Lauder as a runner-up. 

Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on the Chemical, and Oil & Gas Industries


Companies in the chemical industry have been slow to evolve and adopt processes that would make them more effective and reach their organizational potential.  In this new report, we analyze the operations of 27 chemical, and oil and gas companies and explore the impact on the Chemical and Oil and Gas industries as they transitioned through multiple mergers and acquisitions, increased regulatory compliance, defined corporate social responsibility programs, fought commodity price increases, and raced to drive growth through globalization projects in Asia, Middle East and South America.  However, throughout these trying times BASF was able to achieve excellence and be a 2016 Supply Chain to Admire and Statoil was a finalist.

Join the Supply Chain Insights & CorpU Ambassador Program


Many supply chains are stuck at the intersection of inventory turns and operating margin with little improvement. Leaders often ask how they can make progress to get past this inflection point and embark on a journey of supply chain excellence.  We know the missing link between ideation and execution is often talent, and it requires a new way of thinking.  
CorpU and Supply Chain Insights have created a Next Generation Supply Chain training program to build a guiding coalition based on organizational learning/benchmarking and we are looking for companies to test the program.  We invite you to participate and provide feedback on the following courses.

  • Building the Customer Centric Supply Chain
  • The Market-Driven Value Network Journey
  • Making the Digital Pivot
  • End-to-End Supply Chain Orchestration
  • Driving Improvement in Decision Making Through Supply Chain Planning
  • Building Agility Through Horizontal Processes

To learn more about joining the ambassador program, contact Regina Denman, Director of Client Services or watch our webinar Design Your Next Generation Supply Chain – How to Get Started.
