Facing Supply Risks: Korea, Europe, and Future Supply Chain Shocks
Date: 7/9/2013
Panelists to be announced shortly.
Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital. While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
Averting the Supply Chain Talent Crisis
Date: 4/30/2013

You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That wasn't the case a decade or two ago, when supply chain jobs didn't require much formal training. But today's immensely complex and evolving global supply chain requires a new and unique type of multitalented employee. In many cases, it's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.

Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions? And how do you integrate these unique workers into crucial decision-making roles within your organization to position your business for continued success?

Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
