Lean, Keen, & Green!
The Future of
Supply Chain Management

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Please join us on Tuesday, November 14th, as we welcome Keith Launchbury, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CDDP, President of Keith Launchbury & Associates, and Past President of APICS International.

The problem with many companies today is that while they have done an impressive job of applying lean concepts to their own internal processes, they have not done the same across their entire supply chain processes.

During this presentation, Keith will explain the rapidly changing nature of the retail marketplace, and the implications for all suppliers to the retail world. He will explain the way in which suppliers must adapt to this new business reality, and the principles which they must adopt to be competitive in this new business environment.
