Agenda

2013 Supply Chain Agenda

Today's unpredictable economy is demanding new levels of insight and innovation from supply chain leaders. Every executive on the leadership team must work together to meet new strategic and tactical challenges—re-examining and re-imagining fundamental supply chain processes and practices.

Join hundreds of your senior executive peers, the Gartner supply chain analyst team, industry leaders and solution providers for 30+ sessions, keynotes, case studies, the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25, roundtables and more. We'll address your key priorities and challenges, including strategy and transformation, integrated business planning, performance measurement and analytics, and collaboration across the supply chain.

Comprehensive Tracks and Sessions

The majority of the agenda is made up of Gartner analyst sessions — research-driven presentations that focus on the issues that matter most for supply chain executives today. Leveraging the latest research collected from organizations worldwide, analyst sessions provide real-world information that will help you make better decisions and drive more successful initiatives.

Our Agenda will feature comprehensive tracks to drill down on your hottest topics, with track sessions tagged to help you create a customized agenda based on your role, experience level and key focus.

    Hot topics to be covered:
    • Supply Chain Strategy and Transformation
    • Metrics and performance management
    • Supply chain planning
    • Supply chain segmentation
    • Cost to serve

Special Sessions

In addition to our comprehensive tracks, our Agenda also features several special sessions providing opportunities to learn from and interact with Gartner analysts, industry experts and peers, and top solution providers:

  • Gartner EMEA Supply Chain Top 25

    We'll reveal for the first time, during a Monday night celebration dinner, the EMEA-headquartered companies that are setting the standard for supply chain excellence.

  • Keynote Sessions

    Typically presented by non-Gartner industry leaders, these plenary sessions are designed to be entertaining and thought-provoking.

    Gartner invites a number of end users to personally present leading-edge case studies and answer questions.

    In these scheduled presentations taking place on the showfloor, leading Solution Providers will share their insights, strategies and best practices with the audience in a small group interactive format.

  • Analyst One-on-Ones

    Sit privately for 30 minutes with a Gartner analyst specializing in the topic you'd like to discuss. Many attendees tell us that a one-on-one session is worth the price of admission, all by itself.
