Supply Chain Management for Competitiveness

Speaker: Lasantha Wijeweera


It is said that in the modern business world, “Companies don’t compete, supply chains compete.” Over the years, supply chain management has evolved from being an auxiliary function to being a business critical function; and many companies owe their success to careful and far sighted management of their supply chains. Despite its momentous importance, most companies define their supply chains very narrowly, thereby losing out on efficiencies and market opportunities.
