Digital Supply Chain leaders must be able to seize the new opportunities and be able to weed out unnecessary hype at the same time. The Council’s mission is to help them develop their specific digital transformation roadmap learning from peers across industries and regions.
We will be looking at the business context for Supply Chain transformation and want to foster an exchange on realistic solutions, capability building and business integration. The group will be self-governed, confidential, industry-neutral and provides a trusted, vendor-free environment where members are exposed to best practices beyond their sectors.
Enduring relationships with trusted peers is the core of the Council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the council value. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
- Collective topic selection and problem solving that puts your issues on the agenda
- Informal, real-time benchmarking of current approaches by member companies to the most challenging issues faced by product development
- Multi-industry insights and best practices from non-competitive peers via in-depth discussions
- Performance accelerating ideas for a key growth engine for your company
- Networking, reputation building and access within your peer community
What our Members say
“Being a council member is a perfect way to exchange with peers in a trusted environment. The group drives the agenda, and every council member is respected, and welcome to contribute. Coming back from a council meeting is refreshing and you always have takeaways. I think The Conference Board Councils’ secret is to have a homogenous group with the same interests, which at the same time maintains diversity.”
Franz-Lothar Wolf, Head of Procurement Strategy, SAP SE
"I think what makes The Conference Board Councils different from other peer networks is that on the one hand, the agenda is really driven by the Council members; it's dynamic it's responsive to those topics that are most important to members. The other aspect is the very confidential nature - Chatham house rule. I know issues I discuss about things that we're dealing with in our company can be shared with the others and it stays within the walls of The Conference Board."
Ms. Joan Belzer, Corporate Secretary, Credit Suisse
The Research is very meaningful and you can see in our Council Agendas we are incorporating more and more a session where we want Conference Board researchers to share their findings with us. The research is timely, and the topics are very relevant. We also use it to see what is coming, and this is the beauty of The Conference Board, it's not just the way it enables this platform for us to exchange but also brings this outside-in information to look forward, what is coming, what are the trends, and from our learnings how we will face these trends together.”
