In a period where Australia is rising strongly as a global competitor in multiple markets despite the recent global downturn, organisations are faced with the need to operate more efficiently to minimise costs and maximise profits. Supply Chain Management capabilities are becoming increasingly more important in ensuring the proficient and effective operation of those Australian enterprises holding tremendous market growth potential within the mining/chemicals, Oil and gas, FMCG, and Retail sectors. This has heightened the focus on who in the organisation is managing the supply chain and how they are addressing the complex balance required to leverage the low-cost options that global sourcing and manufacturing can bring, against the greater environmental impact that global distribution creates. Consumer demands and expectations are changing in the upturn and this in turn is driving change in leadership requirements across the full spectrum of supply chain management. As a result, Supply Chain executives in organisations across all industry sectors need address the changing landscape and to ensure they remain competitive in the marketplace.
