May 22, 2018
Featuring Richard Sharpe CEO, Competitive Insights LLC Moderated by Scott W. Luton, CSCP, LSSGB Founder & Host, Supply Chain Now Radio

“It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.” – Edwards Deming

In today’s rapidly changing business environment, survival is the mindset for many companies. Survival is based on meeting customers’ expectations that are being radically transformed by e-commerce giants like Amazon. Amazon has mastered the use of business analytics to drive customer behaviors and the rapid capturing of market share.

Winning against - and with - Amazon takes intelligence that can only be gained using actionable insights from Big Data Analytics. Find out how to create offensive strategies that reduce cost-to-serve and build your future profits. Strategies that are differentiated. Strategies that drive new growth and success.

In this interactive session, we will discuss:

  • The results of a global survey on where companies are in their utilization of effective business analytics

  • Moving from a defensive nature to one of a winning offensive playbook

  • Best practices to not just survive but thrive
