Washington, DC. Critical strategies for creating and delivering supply chain value will be the theme at the 2009 Supply-Chain World North America Conference & Exposition, March 16-19, in Houston, Texas. A key topic of discussion will include using the Supply-Chain Operations Reference model (SCOR), a diagnostic tool to improve supply chain efficiencies.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Michael Hammer, author of international best-seller "Reengineering the Corporation" and three other books, who will present his views on the operational "nuts and bolts of business."
Educational conference sessions will be organized into four tracks: globalization and standardization, sustainability and the green supply chain, convergence for total lifecycle management success and the people side of the supply chain.
The Supply-Chain Council currently is accepting proposals for presentations at the conference, as well as reservations for exhibits and sponsorships. For more details visit: www.supplychainworld.org
