Lisa Anderson MBA, CSCP, president of LMA Consulting Group and a sought after manufacturing, distribution and supply chain consultant, speaker and writer who works with manufacturers and distributors in aerospace, building products and food is presenting “The Increased Need for More Control, Speed and Profit: How to Thrive in the Environment” in a TalentStream webinar on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EDT. As the recession is long over and manufacturing has been reigniting, executives are re-evaluating their end-to-end supply chains in response to the critical importance of short lead times, increasing labor rates in low cost countries, concerns about “too much” money tied up in inventory due to lengthy lead times and worries about the increased level of risk. This presentation will feature an interactive discussion on how supply chain and operations leaders can re-configure their supply chain and re-focus their efforts to not only remain competitive but to thrive in this environment.
“In today’s Amazon-impacted marketplace, customers expect rapid deliveries and 24/7 accessibility at low prices. Executives are turning previous notions about offshoring upside down,” explains Anderson. “And although there are key challenges, customers don’t want to hear about our obstacles, they just want their orders faster. If we ignore these demands, we risk our customers going to our competitors who can get them what they need when they need it at the right price and level of service.”
“Since service has risen to a level of critical importance, I’m starting to see my clients and colleagues consider what it will take to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. and/or to nearby countries. I’m conducting a research study to dig into this topic in more detail so that my clients can stay ahead of the curve. Success will not follow those late to the party. Customers will go to those who have the right product at the right price at the right location at the right time. Join us for the webinar to find out how supply chain management is becoming strategic to business growth and success.”
Capitalizing on her over 25 years of experience advising manufacturers and distributors on supply chain, operations, ERP and SIOP, Anderson continually provides data that helps manufacturers and distributors focus in on which people, process and system improvements are essential to preparing their supply chains to create a sustainable advantage.
TalentStream, a recruiting company that helps emerging technology companies secure the right people, the most critical piece of the puzzle to build and grow a successful business, is hosting the complimentary webinar. Registration is required.
