Who: Michael Chui, Principal of the McKinsey Global Institute, and Lorenzo Martinelli, Vice President of Corporate Strategy at E2open, will discuss the opportunities associated with leveraging social technologies to improve collaboration and overall performance of the global supply chain.
What: New research by the McKinsey Global Institute indicates that there is tremendous potential—estimated at $900 billion to $1.3 trillion—for social technologies to improve communication and collaboration within and across enterprises. Moderated by Frank Quinn, Editorial Director of Supply Chain Management Review, attendees of “Social in Supply Chain: Unlocking the Collaboration Potential” will learn how social technologies are currently being used, how they are likely to evolve in the near future, and which business sectors will benefit most from social supply chain programs.
