Welcome to the April 2015 issue of Supply Chain Navigator.
The purported talent shortage is on every supply chain executive’s mind, but is a crisis really in the offing, or have a few sensational statistics blown this topic out of proportion?
In this issue, we bring together many of the top minds in the field–including professors, students, recruiters and practitioners–to provide readers with a balanced and realistic assessment of the talent concern, and offer some practical examples of how industry leaders are managing the true challenges in supply chain talent development.
Also throughout this issue, we continue delve into the trends and developments most pivotal to supply chain success, including shifting global manufacturing strategies and innovative approaches to new product design. Our star-studded lineup of contributors includes world-renown supply chain researcher and professor Hau Lee, acclaimed Wharton professor Morris Cohen, SCM World’s Kevin O’Marah, and supply chain leaders from Intel, HP, Infineon, Philips, Seagate, Jabil, TDK-Lambda and more.
