Visibility is a start. Collaboration is the goal.

I’ve got another session presentation coming up that I’d thought I share. Kinaxis will be participating at the Extended Supply Chain 2011 conference taking place on April 5-6 in London, UK. I’ll be presenting the session, “Do you trust yourself to collaborate?” The presentation is an expansion of a blog post I wrote the other month.  Here is the abstract: Collaboration can bring tremendous value to outsourced supply chains, such as we see in electronics and apparel.  But what is collaboration? All too often collaboration is viewed in the context of exchanging data.  Visibility to data is important, but collaboration is ultimately about teams of people working together to achieve a shared objective (but perhaps not a common goal). The potential value of collaboration in the supply chain is enormous in terms of both reduced inventory and increased supply chain agility, not to mention the reduced cost of ”policing” supply chain relationships. Visibility is a start. Collaboration is the goal. Follow me on Twitter at @Milesahead or on the 21st Century Supply Chain Blog to get updates from the event.
