Recent Supply Chain Insights research shows there is a disparity between supply chain priorities and performance, yet technology investment is rarely the first considered way to resolution. While the supply chain organization may understand their limitations and even the capabilities that are missing, they may not clearly know how to go about filling the gaps. Compounding the problem, the research shows that IT tends to overestimate their level of alignment with supply chain (and other groups). They believe there is more of a shared understanding and support across the organization than in reality there may be. This begs the question: If IT doesn't see the problem, how does the supply chain organization get support to solve it?
In this one hour webcast, Lora Cecere, founder of Supply Chain Insights will review key findings from the Supply Chain Alignment research, while Laura Dionne, Senior Director Worldwide Operations Planning of TriQuint will offer a practical perspective and an experienced view on how to gain better alignment between Supply Chain and IT as it relates to technology investments aimed at driving better business outcomes. CJ Wehlage, an industry principal at Kinaxis will moderate the session.
