The speakers this year include Bryan Ball, vice president and research director for Aberdeen's Supply Chain and Supplier Management practice, and Bill Nienburg, vice president of global merchandising and sales planning at Under Armour.
This year's keynote speakers will expand on the following topics:
- Bryan Ball, vice president and research director for Aberdeen's Supply Chain and Supplier Management Practice, will share insights from his recent research regarding the best practices and innovative initiatives today's leading organizations rely on to make a significant impact on supply chain and business performance.
- Bill Nienburg, vice president of global merchandising and sales planning at Under Armour, will discuss how planning process and systems improvements have played an instrumental role in Under Armour's continued global expansion and development of innovative footwear, apparel and accessories that helps athletes everywhere perform their best.
Supply chain optimization is a continual process of performance improvements, innovations and results. Often, the best source of insight is the community of users who have the same mission: to Outplan, Outperform and Outpace the competition. With so much information all around you, this year's conference will help participants identify the supply chain analytics important to their business and discuss what it means to have the metrics that matter at your fingertips. The conference brings together supply chain executives and power users to share successes and ask questions across many industries including apparel, consumer goods, durable goods, food and beverage, furniture, life sciences, after-market service parts, specialty retail, process chemical, and wholesale distribution.
