    Supply Chain Back to School with Mike Griswold of Gartner

    Supply Chain Back to School with Mike Griswold of Gartner

    Mike Griswold is the Vice President of Research at Gartner, specializing in retail with a particular focus on forecasting and replenishment. He is responsible for Gartner’s annual Top 25 Supply Chain ranking and joins Supply Chain Now on a monthly basis to discuss the latest in retail supply chains from an analyst’s perspective.
    Much of the country is either back to school or headed there soon – but what about our supply chains? If they had to pack their backpacks and start the school year off on the right foot, what would they do?
    In this episode, Mike takes global supply chains ‘back to school’ with co-hosts Greg White and Scott Luton:
    • Official recession designation or not, the best defense is a good offense
    • Employee retention is already critical for supply chains, but it will only become more so as human-centric digital automation is adopted
    • Cash management and inventory management are absolutely essential – and supply chain leaders need to work with finance to get to the head of the class

    Supply Chain Now Classic: Supply Chain Disruption is Job Security for Today’s College Graduates

    Supply Chain Now Classic: Supply Chain Disruption is Job Security for Today’s College Graduates

    For those of us already working in business, the conflict in Ukraine, COVID, and warehouse space shortages are three disruptions in what has been a very challenging last few years. But for the students getting ready to graduate from college with degrees in supply chain and management, they combine to equal job security for the foreseeable future.
    In this popular Supply Chain Now classic, Scott Luton had the chance to speak with two seniors about to graduate from Texas Christian University and Dr. Travis Tokar, a professor of Supply Chain Management with the Neely School of Business at TCU. Anne O'Connor will be graduating with a degree in supply chain and value management, and Jacob Mutscher is graduating with a double major in supply chain and value management and business information systems.
    In this conversation, they share their well-educated views on:
    • Why supply chain was the most appealing course of study for them, and what they hope to be able to do with the degree after graduation
    • The global supply chain trends they are tracking while completing their studies
    • The importance of investing in college-level supply chain programs, and how they are positioning students to succeed after graduation

    This week, Scott Luton, Greg White, and Kelly Barner spent a fast-paced hour covering some of the most compelling news stories of the week:
    • The complexities in the oil supply chain that might be making it possible for countries like Russia and Iran to export crude oil in defiance of global sanctions
    • The real-world implications of the recently passed $280 Billion CHIPS Act for the U.S> semiconductor industry
    • Whether 3D printing has finally gotten to the point where it is a practical solution for meeting parts needs
    • Is it time to panic about the availability of Hershey’s product this Halloween???

Insightful and engaging!

It’s obvious that the Supply Chain Now team puts extraordinary effort into every single episode of the podcast. But what makes this show a true standout is the quality of the guests, stories, and strategies shared. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Very genuine

I enjoy the wide variety of supply chain topics and the team of hosts bring an interesting perspective to the conversations.

elephant282 ,

Outdated information.

10 minuets into an episode in 06/21 they finished talking about sports accolades to shove an advertisement for the guest.

Next episode I listened to they talked about prices of semi conductors in 1990.

Listen to these guys complain about how life has changed if you love outdated podcasts.
