Supply Chain Management Center of Excellence
Lamar Johnson’s career path is a lesson in finding the “win-win” in any situation. This talent landed Johnson a second career at McCombs, where he leverages these same skills as executive director of the Center for Customer Insight and Marketing Solutions and senior associate director of the Supply Chain Management Center of Excellence.
Bragging on the students at McCombs isn’t difficult, and last week I was excited to share three key experiential learning initiatives with the McCombs Advisory Council.
Michael Hasler's Introduction to Operations Management class spent five weeks in Hong Kong watching Target's supply chain in action.
Communications expert Olivia Fox Cabane of SpitFire Strategies demonstrated how to influence and persuade people more effectively in high anxiety situations, in an interactive presentation Nov. 5 to faculty, students and executives at McCombs.
Tight credit, global supplier risk, escalating energy costs, declining consumer confidence, unprecedented earnings pressure, high unemployment...oh my! The result is a perfect storm for reducing the number of opportunities for college graduates in typical career paths.
A recent conference sponsored by the Supply Chain Management Center and the Center for Customer Insight and Marketing Solutions at McCombs featured Bob Johansen from the Institute for the Future, a Silicon Valley based nonprofit think tank producing an evolving 10-year forecast using socio-economic, technology and demographic trends.
