It is sponsored by these five professional Supply Chain organizations.

    The Music of  the Supply Chain in the Delaware Valley   

    Supply Chains are a little like Music. They run to a rhythm. You might call it a beat, they have a daily routine, & a yearly cycle that they run through; where the content changes but the patterns, rhythms are very similar.

    You can have a highly structured, top down approach, like an orchestra controlled by a conductor, under a strict set of predefined rules. But then there is jazz, in which musicians follow the same basic melody & tempo, but can improvise within that framework to deliver a better total result--or there is country music embracing many different styles all rooted in a rural folk tradition.

    Within supply chain each musician (function) makes their own individual contribution to the effort – but it’s the sum of the parts that are greater than the whole – when each adds value – that music or harmony is achieved. So should our supply chains be more like an orchestra or jazz or country music or ???.
