Creating Intrapreneurs & T-Shaped People


Leadership in supply chain relies upon making innovation happen inside our organisations, which means developing and fostering effective multi-dimensional leaders and teams who are effective organisational innovators or ‘intrapreneurs’.

The supply chain is a diverse entity, encompassing many departments within an organisation. Effective leaders have ‘T-shaped’ capabilities, which means a depth of knowledge in one or more aspect and a breadth of knowledge across the entire process.

The Supply Chain Academy focuses on creating forward thinking intrapreneurs and T-shaped people, who excel at driving the supply chains of today and the future.

The Academy

‘Today’s business is increasingly driven by the performance of its supply chain’. Supply chains are rarely aligned to support the business strategy. Functional teams often have competing priorities of supply and demand. The result can be lost sales, write-downs and discounts, the additional cost to ship and warehouse excess inventory and obsolete stock. The Supply Chain Academy provides innovative learning experiences for CEOs & Executives to explore and overcome these issues. It provides an environment for executives to come together, to develop ideas and to plan exciting futures. We are different because our focus is not only on formal training, but also on thought leadership – learning from the experience of your peers and sharing best practice.
