Supply Chain World Europe 2012 is a great opportunity to break away from internally focused initiatives and learn how the world's top companies are building industry-leading supply chains. The conference creates a forum for supply chain leaders to discuss ongoing challenges and to find effective solutions for transforming their supply chains into a competitive advantage.

Many organizations and supply networks are still mired in hierarchical, fragmented, and top-down approaches to supply chain management. Now firmly established as a strategic necessity, successful supply chain management requires a fully integrative approach: employees, processes, technology, functions, and even supply network partners need to be fully aligned and synchronized in order to build capability and thereby gain sustainable competitive advantage.
