VENUE: HYPERIGHT DATA CLUB | STOCKHOLM Tegnergatan 14, 113 58 Stockholm


According to Adobe, 70% of US workers currently don’t feel equipped to leverage AI and digital technologies in their jobs. Even though most organizations have realized the need for digital and AI technologies in augmenting business functions, there is wide gap between what is envisioned and what can be realistically achieved. And this gap is due to lack of maturity in business teams and functions to clearly articulate their needs and adopt new tools, processes and ways of working. Digital is as much about mindsets and behaviours as it is about technology and data – a fact missed by most.

This course is intended for the mid-level supply chain managers and supply chain experts in Medium and Large organizations who are tasked with the responsibility to identify opportunities for digital augmentation in their area of responsibility. And who want to acquire and upgrade their digital and AI skills to become future-oriented contributors for their organizations.

This Business-centric ‘jargon-free’ introduction to AI and Digital technologies focuses on business applications of technology in supply chain management – its impact on roles and KPIs, change in mindset, new data-driven skills and agile ways of working.


Why this training is crucial for your organisation:

Data and AI are not just technological paradigms, they also change the business processes and ways of working. Supply Managers and experts need the ability to identify the opportunities to utilize technologies to improve de- mand forecasting, supply chain planning, inventory planning, vendor analytics etc. They need the ability to develop the business case to secure executive sponsorship and clearly define the business requirements for digital and IT teams to develop advanced business solutions. Finally, they must also need the ability to adopt the data-driven solution and drive transformation in their operating models and ways of working to leverage insights and intelli- gence from data.

This program addresses all these needs new needs of the supply chain management teams and imparts them the necessary knowledge and skills through a carefully selected assortments of case-studies, group activities and round-table discussion. To increase the efficacy of the program further, we also encourage the participants to bring individual problem statements and work on it during the training.
