If you found yourself finally getting around to Googling “what is blockchain” right before the holidays last year, you weren’t alone.
Google Trends shows the search term hit peak popularity the week before Christmas after rising dramatically throughout 2017, offering two insights: (1) People are really interested in learning about the emergent technology and (2) Most people still have no clue what it is.
If you’re in either or both camps, COE’s March 23 event is designed specifically for you. We’re partnering with Fisher College of Business’ Operations and Logistics Management Association of MBA students to present Supply Chain 2030, a primer on four much-buzzed-about, but often little-understood, technologies that are poised to drive major transformation in the global supply chain in the coming years – and in some cases, already are.
Our key areas of focus span the four key supply chain processes (plan, source, make, deliver) and cover artificial intelligence, blockchain, additive manufacturing, and drones. Speakers include Waseem Shaik, Practice Lead IoT Analytics, Teradata’s Think Big Analytics; Adam Winter, CFO of Clarus Solutions; Dr. Ed Herderick, director of additive for the Ohio State Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence; and Uday Bauskar, drones program head for Tata Consultancy Services NA.
Throughout the morning event, you’ll have the chance to network with other COE members and Fisher MBA students, learn the basics on these topics, and engage in Q&A with all the speakers. When you walk out, you’ll have the grasp of the basics for each – and a better picture of where they’re taking the world of supply chain management.
Registration is open now for this members-only COE event.
