Dynamic Supply Chain Management: Navigating Risk

Dynamic Supply Chain Management: Navigating Risk

"Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first."
– Frederick B. Wilcox

Risk is inherent to achievement. As events such as the earthquake in Sichuan, China demonstrate, we cannot distance ourselves from risk. Avoiding risk is impossible, but managing it is critical to sustained success.

Join us in New Orleans for the fourth annual Customer-Supplier Division Symposium and learn firsthand what risk management strategies are being recommended by today's thought leaders. If you've attended CSD events in prior years, you know that we combine fun and excitement with informative, thought-provoking, and always highly interactive learning sessions. Come and explore this fascinating city, get some fresh ideas, and take advantage of the incredible networking opportunities in one unforgettable event!

Pre-symposium tutorials will begin Wednesday, February 4, followed by the introduction to generative conversation and the opening reception. Symposium sessions will begin February 5.
