“Supply chain is not just operations anymore. It’s ‘how do we support the strategy of the company?’ It’s agility and flexibility. Leaders need global perspective, communication skills, a mindset toward social responsibility and sustainability, innovation. We need analytical skills, financial skills, developmental skills. We need the ability to work across diverse organizations, teams and individuals. It’s a real mix of hard and soft skills. How do we make sure we have all of those in our organization?”
— Dr. Nancy Nix, AWESOME Executive Director, speaking as moderator at the CSCMP Global Conference session on “Leveraging Networks to Achieve Women’s Excellence in Supply Chain.”
