The human race has been significantly challenged over the past 2 years. Our very way of living has been disrupted and this has had an impact, the magnitude of which we have yet to fully comprehend. On the tail of this our workplaces, the organizations that represent industries like technology, manufacturing, distribution, and others have been forced to pivot hard to remain relevant and survive this existential crisis. In many ways, this has signaled that we will not only need to evolve and change now, but that change will be the new normal.
The leadership challenge is to implement supply chain transformations while effectively utilizing available human resources. This requires a fresh look at how people are engaged in the process, educated, challenged, respected, and empowered to succeed.
In this session we will cover some of the unique challenges presented by a Supply Chain transformation and how they impact the change management effort with your people. We will look at how to prepare your organization for the impending transformation. Then as you progress through the transformation, we will identify some tools and techniques that will both fuel the Supply Chain transformation and inspire your people to eagerly engage in the transformation effort – resulting in reduced burnout, improved retention, better team cohesion and structures that support a cross functional supply chain management approach. Finally, we will leave you with a method for ensuring that the transformation sticks and your people continue the journey of change.
