What’s on the Agenda for Edge Conference 2019?
Over the span of three days, this conference will feature hundreds of sessions in addition to 6 keynote speakers who we are very excited to see on stage. Additionally, the Supply Chain Exchange Exhibition will allow attendees to experience the latest in supply chain technologies up close and personal. Those who are planning to attend the conference will enjoy and benefit from workshops, interactive simulations, and round table discussions led by logistics experts from all around the world.
However, the most attractive feature of the CSCMP Edge Conference is arguably the ability to customize sessions based on knowledge of the topic.
For example, session topics feature 3 knowledge levels: foundational, applied, and strategic. Essentially, the levels correspond to the level of understanding of a topic as opposed to the attendee’s specific position of the company they represent.
In other words, the higher the level, the more complex and in-depth the subject matter...
Foundational-level sessions: Sessions that are designed as a foundational level focus on providing a broad scope of information, awareness, an education of a supply chain-related topic. It introduces a new area of specialty as opposed to simply expanding upon the current knowledge base.
Applied knowledge sessions:Those who have a general understanding of specific applications or topics will benefit from the applied knowledge session. Overall, these education sessions provide in-depth strategies that will help the user or attendee better implement more technical solutions.
Strategic sessions: Attendees who have a significant understanding of supply chain operations or specific logistic topic areas including senior-level executives and officers will benefit from the strategic sessions. This is an area that focuses on highly technical and detailed topics of study within supply chain management in operation.
There are more than 20 different educational tracks with wide-ranging topics. These include the global supply chain, warehousing, integrated supply chain finance, and much more.
