MANASSAS, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --   INSIGHT, Inc., top

and Founding Director, Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer, will be speaking at
Supply Chain World North America on Wednesday, April 10. Jeff's
presentation, "Supply Chain Management on the Bleeding Edge," will
discuss the evolution of supply chain management and the importance
of optimizing the global supply chain to gain market share and grow
profits.  
"Supply Chain Management (SCM) has evolved over the years from silo
management to cross-functional operations across the global
enterprise," said Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer, president and founding
director of INSIGHT, Inc. "Today's supply chain strategies are much
more comprehensive and include procurement options, manufacturing
options, outsourcing, postponement, risk management, carbon
emissions, energy consumption, duties, taxes, and so on." 
In this presentation, Jeff will provide a fresh perspective on supply
chain contemporary challenges, including: 


 
--  How the evolution of supply chain management has fallen short
--  Strategic sourcing
--  Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP)
--  Unification of marketing and SCM to achieve a profit-maximized
    corporate strategy that goes well beyond S&OP and even Integrated
    Business Planning (IBP)
--  Supply chain vulnerability and hardening
--  SCM and sustainability.
