In the consumer products and hi-tech industries, supply chain is recognized as an equal contributor of business value. This is not always the case in pharmaceutical and healthcare. What can pharmaceutical and healthcare learn from its supply chain peers in other industries? David Lowndes, SVP of global supply chain and quality at Shire, joins Kevin O'Marah, chief content officer of SCM World, and Barry Blake, VP, life sciences research, to discuss findings from extensive SCM World research that addresses these issues. This is an open discussion on how supply chain can contribute greater value to the business beyond operating cost reductions.
