Supply Chain is a globalised market and consequently the fastest growing department in business today. The focus is on connecting people worldwide through collaboration and digitalisation. Right from the start of the purchase order through to the final delivery, we need to ensure that we have ticked all the boxes, considered the risks, united the silos and managed the terms of procurement. Do we have the means of providing a complete cockpit view of all the participants in each of our global chains?

This event will showcase the key areas your business needs to focus on to:

• strengthen your supply chain
• improve your return capital investment
• increase your customer's experience

How and Why Supply Chain Leaders should Champion Customer Centricity InitiativesBOOK NOW
03/05/2017 09:15:00 - 03/05/2017 13:00:00

When: Wednesday 3rd May 2017, 09:00 (for 09:15) - 13:00 
Where:
 Mayfair Room, 5th Floor, The Helicon, 1 South Place, Moorgate, London, EC2M 2RB

How customer centric is your supply chain?

The increasing sophistication of the customer is one of the mega-trends of recent years, with service becoming as much a competitive differentiator as cost. But many supply chains have failed to recognize this paradigm, remaining internally “process-centric” and with scant regard for the end customer. The reality is that maximizing “the right experience” for the customer requires product offerings and their supporting supply chains to be integrated and indistinguishable. This has already been recognized by those leading companies who have already transformed their supply chains into customer-centric supply chains, such as Cisco, Starbucks and NCR.

 

What is Supply Chain Journey Mapping?

 

Supply Chain journey mapping is a human-centered design methodology that allows you to look at your supply chain from your customers’ perspective, and is equally applicable whether you operate in a B2B or B2C environment. The objective is to deliver better customer experience to improve retention and profitability.

   

This interactive workshop will include:

• Hands-on experience of mapping customer journeys through the supply chain.

• Use of journey maps to diagnose customer experience issues and identify opportunities within the supply chain to become more customer-centric.

Designing supply chain experiences that meet your customer’s expectations and deliver business value

What participants will learn:

 

Powerful, practical tools for creating customer-centered Supply Chain strategies, and tips for introducing supply chain journey mapping into your organisation for immediate action.

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to improve the customers’ experience by incorporating and combining the people, process and technological resources that can drive new attitudes and behaviours within the supply chain to deliver superior results.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

Speakers: To be announced shortly.

CILT is an Associated Partner in a European project called “FutureDRV: Preparing professional drivers for their role within the fourth industrial revolution and its innovations within road transport” . The project is funded through the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission.

The main aim of the FutureDRV project is to explore the future of professional driving and the competence requirements relating to it, looking forward to around 15 – 20 years from now.

The project results intend to give stakeholders in the field (such as employers, education providers, social partners or policy makers) a reliable perspective of the changes that are ahead and the influence on both the current and future workforce of professional drivers.

The project started in September 2016 and will last for three years. There are six project partners from Germany, UK, Sweden, Austria, Hungary and France.

The initial project task is to get a comprehensive overview of professional driving and the context that it will take place in from both stakeholders and interested parties.

The project consortium will look at the future of professional driving from several perspectives to ensure they get a comprehensive source of information to build on.

As part of this process a UK workshop will be held on Thursday 29th June, from 10:00 to 15:00, at the CILT office in Corby.

The UK project partner, Transformotion, would like to invite stakeholders and interested parties to attend this free event. There are limited spaces available and only one space per company / organisation, so register for this event without delay!
