It’s time to adapt a value-based approach to supply chain management, redefine what “planning” means, align your organization to use planning systems, and harness the power of cognitive computing and machine learning.

Join Lora Cecere, founder of Supply Chain Insights, and Vivek Soneja, Global Head of Supply Chain Solutions at Anaplan, as they discuss the future of supply chain management and share best practices for leading the way to a new supply chain standard.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Why value needs to replace volume as the goal of supply chain planning
  • How planning as a concept is being redefined
  • How asking “what if” can lead to making value-based decisions
