This research note is restricted to the personal use of [email protected] This research note is restricted to the personal use of [email protected] Analysis Figure 1. Agenda Overview for Industry Supply Chain, 2015 Source: Gartner (January 2015) The industry supply chain agenda serves heads of supply chain and supply chain centers of excellence for seven industry verticals — consumer products, healthcare providers, high-tech, industrial, life sciences, natural resources and retail. The concept of a demand-driven value network (DDVN) applies equally to each one of these vertical industries, and provides the foundation on which the research agendas are established. A DDVN is defined as a "business environment holistically designed to maximize value of and optimize risk across the set of extended supply chain processes and technologies that senses and orchestrates demand based on a near-zero-latency demand signal across multiple networks of corporate stakeholders and trading partners." This is the element that heads of supply chains are being asked to design and deliver, requiring them to partner with other leaders to incorporate the appropriate end-to-end processes, capabilities and metrics.

This research note is restricted to the personal use of [email protected] This research note is restricted to the personal use of [email protected] Supported by the DDVN construct, agendas for each industry will illustrate supply chain excellence, best practices insights and strategies for becoming demand-driven. The industry supply chain agenda aims to identify the capabilities and strategies that supply chain leaders should invest in, and takes the additional step of putting them into industry context. Best practices, supporting technologies, talent and skills development, and the design and use of well-structured metrics, each nuanced for evolving industry business models, operating challenges, regulatory requirements and customer demands will be covered in our upcoming research. In addition to the core coverage on industry trends and best practices, the industry supply chain agenda will leverage specific research themes that are being explored: Order-to-delivery trends, metrics and practices by industry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
