    Knowledge as the Power for Planners in Supply Chain Decision Making

      In his presentation at the Kinexions 2011 conference, Kevin O'Marah stated that one of the next challenges for responsively managing global supply chains is knowledge, specifically bringing the power of knowledge to supply chain planners. It seemed to me that this would be an important discussion topic for this community.


      How do you currently gain insights and knowledge regarding events that are occuring in the supply chain? If you are not receiving the knowledge that you require, what suggestions do you have for management teams for the best means to foster and deliver the right knowledge?


      Is this need reflected in organizational cultural challenges, technology tools, opportunities for broadening skill base, or combinations of all of these?


      Let's start a conversation.
