10:20 a.m. Supply Chain Management for CFOs: Where's the Beef?
If only the CFO understood us better! We can help achieve better results and enhance company share value. This panel will focus on the visibility of the SC as a competitive weapon, and how "exemplars of excellence" in this field, including companies such as Dell, Wal-Mart and others, do it.

1:15 p.m. Where is the Logistics Service Provider (LSP) Industry Going?
There is a lot of change going on in the LSP space, and the whole industry continues to grow strongly. With fewer players and tighter capacities, this no longer a buyer's market. What should shippers do to make outsourcing work for them, and for their partner?
3:15 p.m. Executive Exchange
3:55 p.m. Break
4:15 p.m. Sales and Operations Planning
Increasing variation in what consumers want, along with a reduced asset base (production capacity, inventory,...) make it increasingly difficult for firms to balance supply and demand. This is further complicated by firms reducing and extending their supply base which has increased corporate risk. The result is that more firms are seeking to implement Sales and Operations Planning (S & OP) processes to systematically and collaboratively balance supply and demand so the firm can execute against a common vision. This panel will focus on benefits and challenges related to S & OP implementation, and the implications for supply chain partners.
4:55 p.m. Executive Exchange
5:20 p.m. Concluding Remarks
5:30 p.m. Post-event Reception: Networking Program - Recognizing LQ's Contributors
