When I grow up I want to be a chief supply chain officer
from The 21st Century Supply Chain
Even with the term "supply chain" being around for 30 years now, not too many parents have ever heard their children proclaim "I want to be a CSCO when I grow up." As one presenter at the latest CSCO Summit held in Chicago on Nov. 29 and 30, observed, "Supply chain is not sexy." Even finance and IT draw more youth to their respected fields than careers in supply chain. Maybe supply chain always has been the black sheep of the company family, the necessary evil, the cost of doing business. Although this was only the second CSCO Summit held by the IE Group, it became evident early in the presentations that Supply Chains are playing an increasingly integral part in the profitability and competitiveness of today's leading companies.
