Supply Chain Novus
An invitation-only executive leadership forum

Tuesday, Aug. 30 | 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET

SAS World Headquarters
820 SAS Campus Drive, Building C
Cary, NC 27513

Novus ordo seclorum. A Latin phrase meaning a new succession or order of the ages, it perfectly captures the spirit of this transformational moment worldwide. As old-school models of supply chain efficiency give way to completely new and different ways of managing supply and demand, it’s clearer than ever that the only true constant really is change.

How can organizations stabilize immediate upheaval while also developing end-to-end resilience against disruptions? And what role can technology play in protecting supply chains against future shocks?

Join fellow executives, industry leaders, renowned scholars and technology professionals for a full day devoted to reconsidering and reconfiguring everything you thought you knew about supply chains.
