OTTAWA, ON, May 21, 2021 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, will host the Big Ideas in Supply Chain Summit on June 1-2, 2021. Driven by the theme of "Accelerate your transformation now!" the virtual summit will focus on how business leaders can quickly seize the opportunity to retool their supply chain for the new normal to start driving impact and value today and be ready for any future or disruption.   

Join supply chain practitioners and experts from Mars, Bell, Kinaxis and more to hear how leading companies are embracing digital transformation to maintain competitive advantage with real-life use cases, demos, lessons learned and change management processes.

"Supply chains have never been more relevant as evident by their growing role in the success or failure of a business -- especially during times of volatility," said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis. "Innovative leaders have realized incremental change isn't enough to mitigate the risks and capitalize on the opportunities that come with disruption. The craft of supply chain planning is experiencing a fundamental evolution in the planning governance model and has given rise to the need for a new technique, a new way of concurrent thinking, and the speakers at this event are graciously sharing their insights and success stories on how to do that."
