Most supply chains suffer from parochial behaviors, especially if they cut across separate enterprises. Every link in the supply chain works towards maximizing its own individual goals rather than maximizing the overall supply chain value. 

Utilizing Graynomics, a niche business gamification platform focusing on simulating and shaping the most value-eroding human behaviors, attendees will work towards achieving better alignment of organizational culture and values.  Consisting of a typical manufacturing-distribution supply chain starting with a raw material supplier and then Production, Warehouse, Retailer, Consumer, Logistics and the SCM Planning office, the simulation will operate three distinct categories of performance : Financial, Operational and Behavioral and the linkages between them across the supply chain. 

Participants will play grouped together in teams, with scoring of the game focused on Financial, Operational and Behavioral Leadership.

Our Supply Chain and/or Procurement function is facing many challenges as we serve the business, support suppliers and provide assurances that the finance organizations require of us. The future is cloudy and exciting, and change is already evident in areas like digitalization, AI and Machine Learning. However, there are fundamental challenges that have not changed and need to be addressed – and Finance, Operations and Procurement must work together to provide clear value to the organizations we serve.

Mark will look at these challenges from the perspective of his 40 years in supply chain executive roles as well as his 8 years of supply chain strategy consulting. What is the landscape and what are the challenges that must be addressed to deliver sustainable value? All solutions are around People, Process, Technology and Value.

Suppliers who excel in providing client value drive stronger performance and better outcomes for supply chain and procurement teams.  High levels of service, quality or safety are key drivers of value for clients but may sometimes be under-emphasized when evaluating suppliers or less critical drivers of value over-emphasized.  Now, advances in data science make it possible for suppliers to focus on the most important outcomes and value for clients.  Learn about Sodexo’s journey developing a data-driven business strategy that improve our performance, differentiates us and most importantly, creates customer value.

Positioned early in the supply chain, the U.S. business of chemistry is recognized as a valuable solutions provider, supplying versatile, high-performing products that touch 96 percent of all manufactured goods. Demand for chemistry is poised to grow substantially in the coming decades given its essential contributions to products that improve energy efficiency, enhance sustainability, protect the public during pandemics, and mitigate climate change.


In this talk, American Chemistry Council (ACC) Director of International Trade, Ed Brzytwa, will detail:

  • How the chemical industry is pivotal to all of the supply chains and industrial bases listed as Administration priorities in President Biden’s Supply Chain Executive Order;
  • Which policies can negatively impact the business of chemistry and both upstream and downstream actors in the supply chain?.
  • Which policies can maximize industry’s competitiveness, including: making investments in supply chain-related infrastructure; formulating a predictable, rules-based trade policy; reforming permitting processes; ensuring access to energy and intermediate inputs; strengthening worker skills; maintaining a predictable regulatory system; and providing incentives for companies to create innovative products and build new plants in the United States?

  • Knowing where to focus on supplier collaboration is key as implications on stretching your resources thin will diminish the value of collaboration.
  • Developing an effective collaboration model is critical to drive supplier collaboration with an underlying basis of transparency and trust.
  • Collaboration is a joint effort and shouldn’t be overtly focused on a single effort that favors one side and instead bring a balanced view of the necessary objectives to drive success
