Robots and drones, click and collect, automated warehouses, radio frequency identification inventory and many other digital technologies are rapidly transforming the supply chain.

To help executives step up to this challenge, IMD, Switzerland, launched a revamped Digital Supply Chain Management (DCSM) program. The 1-week program’s content reflects the fast-paced disruption that today’s companies face in their supply chains. Program faculty, Ralf Seifert and Carlos Cordon deliver concrete real-time examples of how companies are transforming the way goods go from warehouse to doorstep based on real-world cases and research undertaken by IMD’s Value Chain 2020 think tank.

“Twenty years ago, people got overly excited about automation in manufacturing and business, but this time around, it’s really happening,” says Seifert, director of the newly revamped program.

The program combines intense learning and interaction with industry peers and IMD faculty members. Participants apply the program takeaways to their own companies and get exposure to best practices from some of the most ground-breaking companies that are transforming the supply chain.
