Coaching of supply chain talent

Coaching of supply chain talent

The development of future supply chain leaders
Upcoming talent in supply chain management needs support to allow them to develop themselves as future leaders. Supply chain management is a diverse and complex field. This involves different disciplines, such as purchasing, production, logistics, planning and customer service. Between market segments, the emphasis might differ. Furthermore, there are different roles in the organization, such as line, project or staff.

Making conscious choices in your supply chain career
Increasingly, career development is your own responsibility. That implies not to waite for something to come your way, but thinking ahead by yourself and making conscious choices about changing your discipline, role or employer. That requires reflection on what you have done, learning from mistakes and assessing in what you are really excelling. Not everyone needs to become a supply chain director, also specialists and project managers are needed.
