Inventory Productivity Webinar from MIT

Inventory Productivity: Missing Link Between Supply Chain Management and Sales
MIT SDM Systems Thinking Webinar Series
Jonathan L.S. Byrnes
Senior Lecturer, MIT
Date: January 23, 2012
Time: Noon - 1 p.m. EST
Open to all
Traditionally, supply chain and sales have been managed relatively independently, despite the critical impact that each has on the other. Systems thinking provides the key to linking these two critical business functions.
Inventory productivity, the return on invested capital in your inventory, is the single systems measure that links these two cornerstone functions. This webinar will: 1) explain the central importance of this critical metric; 2) describe how to measure inventory productivity in a practical way; 3) outline the levers that both sales and supply chain managers can use to radically improve inventory productivity; and 4) describe how leading companies have created core processes for sales and supply chain managers to work together to achieve stunning results.
