The Global Operations and Leadership Summit (GOALS) is an all virtual, week-long intensive certificate program designed for executives in operations and supply chain management.
This virtual certificate program will feature live and interactive instruction from experts in the industry. Learn alongside fellow executives as we discuss the remarkable complexities of navigating regional, national and global operations with an emphasis on leadership.
“The best supply chains are prepared and have the resources to compete.”
Our global industry experts and faculty will cover key subjects that are top of mind with today’s supply chain leaders continually seeking to lead and develop operational capability and competency. Join us August 3-6, 2020 for one unique leader-to-leader, powerful and timely personal development opportunity when we launch our inaugural program, GOALS.
Session topics will include: Leading change, agility, leadership shift, hidden risk detection, geo-political landscape impacts across the EU/UK/Russia/China and the USMCA, critical global sourcing decision making, competitive logistics strategies, ethics & trade compliance, supply chain security, supplier relationships, organizational structure & operations, and more.
