ASCM WORKSHOP

ASCM is proud to host a day of supply chain insights and lessons learned to best equip participants to achieve success throughout their enterprise and beyond!

Our programme will cover four relevant and interesting topics. Please let us know if you plan to join us as space will be limited and you won’t want to miss the opportunity for best practice sharing and networking opportunities!

Programme

9 am – 10.30 am

Workforce development

How do you get the best from your workforce? What is the role of learning and development when it comes to supply chain performance? How do we measure success in our training endeavours? During this session we explore the steps that can be taken to best support organisational objectives through a ‘fit for purpose’ workforce. We’ll look at how organisations can:

We will end by sharing and discussing options for organisations to support their skills development journey.

10.45 am – 12.15 pm

Supply chain transformation for NGOs

Non-governmental organisations have supply chains just like any commercial business, and similar cost/efficiency and service level trade-offs, which best support their supply chain strategy!

Using the recently-updated SCOR (Supply Chain Operations Reference) model, we will work through how to best implement a supply chain transformation project within an NGO. The SCOR model has been used by over 5 000 companies to support real performance improvements in various supply chain contexts and across many industry sectors.

In this session we will examine ASCM’s unique transformation learning program (TLP) to illustrate the practical steps that can be taken to create a set of high-impact projects coming out of deep assessments of performance, processes, practices and skills. We will share examples of tools that can be used to support this type of accelerated improvement initiative.

1.15 pm – 2.45 pm

Supply chain sustainability

The triple bottom line could not be any more relevant than during these turbulent times. In this session we will explore how organisations can evaluate their supply chains and assess their alignment to the three pillars sustainability: economic, ethical and environmental.

Using the ASCM enterprise standards for sustainability, we will aim to show how an organisation can:

3 pm – 4.30 pm

Public healthcare supply chain maturity

Healthcare supply chains have a greater impact on human life than virtually any other type of supply chain. Whether it is life-saving medication, medical equipment or critical supplies, this is an industry that demands the best of what supply chain management can bring. Unfortunately, healthcare supply chains in many places in the world are lacking maturity.

To address this issue, ASCM has developed a global healthcare maturity model that can help to identify and diagnose gaps in healthcare supply chains and ultimately support in achieving a better response to the health risks that affect us all.

During this session we aim to achieve the following outcomes:
