Details: Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo is the world’s most important gathering of chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) and supply chain executives.

Winning in the Turns: Define Your Strategy, Optimize Your Costs, Nurture Your Talent

The most successful companies take risks in “the turns,” which can be economic, geopolitical, environmental, social or competitive. While some focus only on short-term mitigation tactics, top performers defy conventional thinking by maintaining focus on long-term strategy and implementing preconceived plans when anticipated disruptions occur.

At Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo, CSCOs and their teams will learn how to evolve their supply chain strategy to adapt to current market conditions, measure successes and failures by understanding what to look for when making decisions to evolve their supply chain, create a culture that awards innovators and risk takers, and develop the mindset to focus on long-term success.

Guest keynotes include:

·       Lisa Bodell, Founder & CEO, futurethink

·       Annie Duke, Decision Strategist, Author, Speaker

·       Vinh Giang, Magician and Communication Coach

·       Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author, Presidential Historian

·       Dr. Steve Robbins, Inclusion Expert, S.L. Robbins and Associates
