McKinsey Supply Chain Executive Academy: October 10-11, Kitzbühel

Over the past few years, significant developments in supply chain planning and execution have changed the ways we need to think about the supply chain— enabling a large performance boost. “Digital supply chain” and “Supply chain 4.0” (SC 4.0) are hot topics throughout all industries and will likely determine the next SC champions.

However, many companies are struggling in their ambitions to leverage these new SC 4.0 and digital supply chain approaches in creating a sustainable step change in their supply chains leveraging. It’s challenging for companies as it involves not only a highly technical solution, but also transforming the company into a digital supply chain.

The Supply Chain Executive Academy session this October will focus on how to make it happen. The event is particularly targeted to heads of supply chains, transformation officers, senior managers of supply chain-related functions, and supply chain executives from major manufacturing or distribution companies.

During the Academy, we will introduce a balanced mix of case studies and presentations on the newest developments, and offer collaborative discussions with McKinsey experts on today's most important supply chain topics. You will also experience the transformational power of startups and learn how to instill digital techniques into your business. There will be plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other senior supply chain executives from leading global companies, as well as with “digital natives”.

The McKinsey Supply Chain Executive Academy will take place at the Alpine University in Kitzbühel, Austria, with the main program on Thursday, October 10 and Friday, October 11. A welcome dinner is planned for Wednesday, October 9.

Capacity for this event is limited. For information or to register, please contact Knut Alicke, supply chain partner, or Jürgen Rachor, supply chain senior expert. See also the downloadable brochure for additional details.
