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
• demonstrate the integrity and value of your brand.

How customer centric is your supply chain? The event is now fully booked

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. 

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, Oracle, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.

In these challenging times, the need for logistics, transport and supply-chain professionals to compete effectively and efficiently is more critical than ever. Glacially slow economic growth, austerity measures and reduced budgets require that companies supply chains are operating as efficiently as possible.
