APICS 2015 is the premier event for supply chain and operations management professionals.
Supply chain and operations management professionals are expected to achieve maximum productivity, meet consumer demand, and remain agile amid instability and unpredictability. Each year, the APICS annual conference offers relevant education, best practices and thought leadership to help attendees lead their organizations and reach these goals.
Sixty members, guests and managers enjoyed a top-notch Top Management Night on April 7th at Harry’s Savoy Grill. Each attendee received a complimentary box of chocolates from Neuchatel Chocolates and an excellent dinner.
Our speaker was Vinay Gupta from the Happen Group, an Innovation Company. He spoke on ‘Innovation: Past, Present, and Future’, and discussed how to improve our innovation-to-application success rate. Simply put, a sound innovation process is simply “a reproducible process of creative problem solving” and “applied invention”. The participants all gave high marks for the presentation.
This was also our awards night.
Member of the Year: Tom Jumbo for his years of service as VP-Finance
Company of the Year: AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals
Instructor of the Year: Al Leigh
As part of our commitment to provide more scheduling flexibility and improve the certification experience for all candidates, APICS has enhanced its exam delivery process.
