Breakout Session # 7: Peer-to-Peer Workshop: Shared Tips, Tools, and Horror Stories to Help Navigate the Imperfect Supply Chain

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.

Is there really such a thing as a perfect supply chain? What happens when the ivory tower of rules and regulations comes face to face with the harsh realities of overseas production? How do you balance competing priorities of product safety, price and time to market? While some larger firms may have the know-how and resources to implement robust supply chain programs, the honest truth is that many companies are simply not big enough or have not dedicated the necessary resources to properly manage their supply chain. 

You, compliance professionals, are not alone in navigating these difficult decisions. This engaging, interactive session is designed for compliance professionals to learn from one another and from the panelists.  This is a great session for first-time attendees and those new to compliance as well as seasoned veterans willing to share their experiences.
