Embracing Uncertainty and Adapting to Change

The past few years have been anything but easy for global manufacturing industry. Constant disruptions, rising pricing pressures, volatile input costs, intense competition and continuous innovation have all forced manufacturers to rethink supply chain strategy and long-term growth plans.

Today’s manufacturers understand that Uncertainty has long been supply chain’s enemy. Supply chain leaders hoping to succeed in this new era must learn to make it a friend. This, in turn, will drive the need for more agile, transparent and demand-driven supply chains.

Welcome to Manufacturing Supply Chain Officer Summit. MSCO 2016 summit, in its 6th year, is continuously dedicated to providing insights into the experiences and perspectives of top supply chain leaders across industries and across the globe, who are all wrestling with similar challenges.
