Supply Chain Collaborative Consulting Consortium (SC4 Consulting)
Throughout the last few years of economic, business and technological change, supply chains have proven to be resilient and able to meet the challenges posed by rising customer expectations and a less predictable business environment. Supply chain management (SCM) professionals have remained efficient and responsive. Company leaders who are able to communicate their significant and proven achievements can not only positively affect return on investment and performance at their own companies, they can also give back to the industry and to their peers by sharing their stories.
For over 15 years, supply chain teams worldwide have been submitting their cases to the Supply Chain Innovation Award™ (SCIA) for the opportunity to receive recognition from their industry peers on a global stage.
This award program receives submissions from creative innovators every year. A panel of reviewers, consisting of members of CSCMP's Research Strategies Committee (RSC) and the editorial board of SupplyChainBrain, review and select submissions of "Innovation in Action" from the top innovative teams who become the finalists that present their cases at CSCMP’s EDGE Conference.
If your supply chain team has developed some SCM collaborative innovation(s) that could help advance the overall supply chain profession, consider sharing your story through the Supply Chain Innovation Award™ competition.The submission period for the 2021 SCIA will be announced in mid-January 2021!
Within CSCMP's Academic Research Symposium, an academic track is devoted to supply chain management teaching innovation and pedagogy. From these submissions, the Editorial Review Panel awards the submission with the largest impact on students and instruction within the field of supply chain and logistics. CSCMP is honored to present the Teaching Innovation Award to faculty members making a difference in the next generation of supply chain professionals.
