Implementing IT- Enabled change - How to avoid getting exactly what you asked forBook Now
Start Date:23/01/2018 18:00
End Date:23/01/2018 20:00
Event Code:DCG0350

23 January 2018, 17:45 for 18:00 - 20:00
Where: Graduate School of Management, Plymouth University, Mast House, Shepherd's Wharf, 24 Sutton Road, Plymouth, PL4 0HJ
Meeting Point: Reception Desk

Speaker: Justin Rees FCILT,  Director, Assurgent Consulting Ltd

A joint meeting with CIPS Devon & Cornwall Branch; this event continues the tradition of a joint event between CILT and CIPS locally.

Implementing IT- enabled change – How to avoid getting exactly what you asked for!
Information technology is ubiquitous in our business and personal lives and is increasingly important as an enabler for productivity and efficiency.  But it can also be a spectacularly quick way of eating up cash, goodwill and the very efficiency it was supposed to enhance.
As with all other sectors of the economy, Logistics and Transport are increasingly driven by data through IT. Navigating the journey from a strategic idea through a project and the associated procurement to the delivery of the benefit of the change presents a cornucopia of opportunities to get it badly wrong.
Business’s response to the challenge of IT-enabled change is to professionalise:  In the UK Project Management is now a Chartered profession. CIPS is recognised as the authoritative body for procurement professionals. Strategy is often viewed as a discrete discipline. Business Change is increasingly recognised as a core element of rolling out new IT.  Benefits Management ensures you get the outcomes you wanted for the business. 
Big change necessitates an array of specialist professionals looking to contribute their unique perspective to the journey that organisations go through when changing the way they do their business, or change the business itself. But we have also acquired a plethora of professional tribes armed with their own specialist knowledge and cultures, advancing their own perspectives and objectives on projects:  What could possibly go wrong!

Justin Rees has over 30 years of scars from IT-enabled change, ranging from the earliest attempts to move paper-based systems onto machines to cutting edge experimentation with big data.  He has been a user, customer, project manager and trouble-shooting consultant. He doesn’t have a magic bullet for making IT-enabled change easy to deliver, but this discussion will help intelligent, open-minded people think about IT Projects in a way that increases the probability of success.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

Equality Act for Placemakers and Transport Planners, BirminghamBook Now
Start Date:24/01/2018 09:00
End Date:24/01/2018 17:00
Event Code:PTRC0497

The introduction of the Equality Act 2010 marked an ambitious attempt by the government to both rationalise and expand equality laws within the UK. With specific duties and obligations placed on public bodies, it has wide ranging implications for transport practitioners. Claims for disability discrimination are on the increase and anyone involved with policies and projects impacting on the design and operation of the public realm needs to have a working knowledge of the provisions of this act. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the application of the Equalities Act to transportation, highways and urban realm activities and is essential training for any consultant working for public sector clients.

4IR The Hype and the RealityBook Now
Start Date:24/01/2018 09:15
End Date:24/01/2018 11:30
Event Code:COR0351

When: 24 January 2018, 09:00 (for 09:15) - 11:30
Where: Oracle Corporation, 1 South Place, London, EC2M 2RB  

Fourth Industrial revolution (4IR) and the impact on the supply chain, logistics, construction, services, transportation and travel.

Please join us and your peers to discuss what may be the most significant business transformation to face any of us in our working life. Let us come together to challenge 4IR, discuss the reality, the opportunities and risks, along with the impact on the wider supply chain, operations, asset utilisation and management, and specifically focusing on supply chain, logistics, construction, services, transportation and travel organisations. There is plenty of hype, let us talk about the reality?

The Hype:-
“The Fourth industrial revolution could leave UK behind” The Independent

“If we get this approach right then the UK can expect to be at the forefront of this global industrial wave. Get it wrong, however, and the UK will be left trailing in its wake.” Chief economist Lee Hopley

The Reality:
- The prizes in terms of bottom and top line appear massive, are they achievable?
- Customer experience is seen as the main driver of 4IR, what does this mean?
- Is it only for manufacturers or how will it impact the whole supple chain?
- If the dream is to push almost limitless choice towards the customer how will logistics, transportation and travel providers improve efficiency and asset utilisation whilst delivering such a limitless service?
- Is it just some new tech with Internet of Things, Cloud, Adaptive Intelligence, Robotics or a complete business and market transformation?

Please join us and your peers on the 24th January at our exclusive roundtable to discuss the potential impact, opportunity and risk of 4IR on the Supply Chain and to see some of the technology at work.


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.

Demand Driven Supply Chain ManagementBook Now
Start Date:25/01/2018 18:00
End Date:25/01/2018 19:30
Event Code:HMG0337
Description:When: 25 January 2018, 18:00 - 19:30
Where: The University of Hull Business School, Cottingham Road, Hull, HU6 7RX
Meeting Point: Business School Reception (Nidd Building)

Speaker: Simon Eagle, Author and Consultant from Camelot & Dr Sarah Shaw, The University of Hull

Most companies would like to think that they are demand-driven, but nearly all suppliers of fast moving goods actually use forecasts to drive their manufacturing and purchase orders through ERP or MRP systems. When such companies become genuinely demand-driven they experience a quantum leap in their performance: they achieve their planned service levels from up to half the average level of inventory using significantly less capacity and without having to continuously expedite / fire-fight and achieve high levels of forecast accuracy.

Demand-Driven SCM (DDSCM) is now being rapidly adopted by companies seeking a competitive advantage and Simon Eagle, who is working as an advisor to many, will explain how DDSCM delivers it, how DDSCM operates and how you can go about quantifying DDSCM's benefits for your company.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

London Supply Chain Network - Making Big Business DecisionsBook Now
Start Date:29/01/2018 19:00
End Date:29/01/2018 20:30
Event Code:LSC0309

29 January, 18:00 for 19:00 - 20:30
Where: Central London  

Speaker: Martin Croucher, Quintiq

Martin will be speaking to the group about “Making Big Business Decisions” - Martin's focus is on Supply Chain Planning and Optimisation and he will be examining the contrasting puzzles that different enterprises need to solve, and he will be talking about

- Rising to the ever growing challenges of protecting margin and managing customer expectation

- The ever pressing need to constantly challenge how we operate to stay in the game

In the words of Martin Luther King Jr: We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there "is" such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.

The Supply Chain Network has been running since September 2004. It was set up as a networking and learning opportunity for people working within the supply chain in retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers. The group numbers about 50 people, with 20 typically at any one meeting. We meet about every six weeks or so in a pub in central London. Networking normally starts from 6pm onwards with snacks at 6.30pm and the 'formal' presentation from 7pm, with more networking afterwards. We aim to have a mix of 'experts' and presentations from within the group. The environment is very informal. The objective is discussion rather than a formal presenter at the front, with presenters encouraged to bring issues as well as experience.

We sometimes have spare spaces, so if you're interested in joining us, please contact Kirsten Tisdale* - put Supply Chain Network in the comments box.

Please note the delegate list will be vetted.

A light buffet will be provided.
