Supply Chain Insights

The Supply Chain Insights team is proud to release two research reports this month, Talent: The Future Supply Chain's Missing Link and Supply Chain Metrics That Matter: A Focus on Contract Manufacturing. Join our webinar Thursday August 15th 1pm ET for a review of our talent report with guest panelists Marcia Connor, Principal at Sensify, Joe Krkoska, Supply Chain Director at Dow AgroSciences and Nicholas Little, Assistant Director, Executive Development Programs at Michigan State University.

Supply Chain Talent Webinar

Companies are feeling the pain of open positions. The average company has four positions open for five months, with 15% supply chain employee turnover. The talent shortage is greatest for middle management positions. Check out the report for three recommendations that we believe can make a difference.


Metrics That Matter: Contract Manufacturing

Contract manufacturers are struggling. With slim margins, stagnant revenue per employee, and unstable growth from year to year, it is difficult to make improvements and undertake long-term commitments to improving their supply chain functions. Brand owners should understand the problems plaguing the industry and work to improve the partnership while also remaining cognizant of the fact that the contract manufacturing business model may simply not be viable in the long term. Find out more about this report here.

Supply Chain Insights Training

Join an elite group of supply chain leaders that have already experienced this unique two day training. The training is designed to help companies better manage the supply chain as a complex system and prepare for Supply Chain 2020. The training focuses on insights gained from quantitative studies, the mining of a decade of financial ratio data, and interviews with leaders of supply chain teams. Atlanta, Georgia dates to be determined shortly.
