SPEAKING

Dr John Gattorna is in the forefront of supply chain design and operations, and acknowledged as a world authority in the logistics/supply chain  domain. He is much sought after as a speaker on the international conference circuit, because most of the ideas he presents are original, developed with his team of co-workers working inside real companies.

John is also a prolific author, and likes to publish a new book every few years to disseminate his innovative ideas as widely as possible, and  in support of his speaking engagements around the globe.

John is one of the pioneers in the supply chain domain who has  changed the way we think about it- from simply a vertical ‘function’ in the enterprise, to a ‘philosophy’ that should be embraced by all functions of the entire enterprise. He and his team are responsible for high-lighting the flaws in the conventional ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to supply chain design (which has been in vogue for the last 40 years), and replacing this with a multiply-aligned supply chain configuration which brings flexibility, greater customer satisfaction (and therefore revenue), at a lower cost-to-serve.  The best of all worlds.

John also brings a human behaviour dimension to the supply chain with his work on internal cultural capability and leadership styles, which taken together define which strategies get implemented. This work in particular sets him apart from virtually all other researchers/commentators in the field.

John is passionate about the supply chain field of investigation, and actively engages with his global ‘community’ of over 5,000 members on a regular basis.

2015 Global Supply Chain Summit, Athens

The 2015 Global Supply Chain ‘thought leadership’ Summit will take place in Athens, 29-30 September, 2015.

The event is being co-hosted by Evangelos Angeletopoulos, Executive Director of the independent consulting firm Arcadia Consulting Ltd, and Dr John Gattorna, Executive Chairman Gattorna Alignment and Global supply chain thought leader. Academic partnerships are being provided by AUEB, a leading University in Greece ,and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Business School. The event ‘by invitation only.

We will again be bringing together in one location, some of the finest minds in the world of enterprise supply chains, to engage with each other and an invited audience.

The event comes at a crucial time for world economies, as both East and West face their respective challenges. But one thing they share in common is that enterprise supply chains are the central nervous system of  global business and commerce, and can offer solutions  where no solutions previously existed.

If interested in  being considered for an  invitation, please contact John Gattorna  john@www.gattornaalignment.com or Evangelos Angeletopoulos  eangeletopoulos@arcadiaconsulting.gr

Theme: It’s not just about cost
Title: “Supply Chain Management is business, and business is people”

Abstract: John Gattorna will make the case that all enterprises are permeated by multiple supply chains/pathways running through them. He also contends that these pathways along which products and services move are powered by people: customersat the demand end; employees, management, and Boardsinside the enterprise; and suppliers at the sourcing end.

All these people influence the way products and services move and therefore the performance of the supply chains they participate in. The trick is to get all parties in synch and aligned. John Gattorna will reveal the framework that he has devised to do just that.

Keynote: People Powering Contemporary High-performance Supply Chains

Products and services don’t simply move through enterprise supply chains by chance. Products and services only flow if customers and consumers on the outside make decisions to buy in certain ways, and management and staff inside enterprises make decisions to either push products through or build capacity to respond rapidly to unpredictable demand.

Two papers delivered @ the CSCMP 2006 Annual Conference, San Antonio

“How to design and manage collaborative supply chains”

There is too much spoken about collaboration and too little understood. This address is based on a wider study of the 4 basic types of supply chain, and takes the view that “you only collaborate with those companies which genuinely want to collaborate”. In this way over – and under – servicing can be eliminated.

“Living Supply Chains: how to mobilize the enterprise around delivering what your customers want” *

People drive supply chains, not technology or infrastructure, or anything else. However, most managers are in denial about this because they can’t work out how to integrate and align customer requirements on the outside, with internal capabilities of the enterprise. This presentation will show you how to do this, and introduce you to the concept of dynami alignment, a new model for aligning strategies, internal human resources, processes, technology, and leadership style, with customers’ buying behaviors.

Global Supply Chain & Logistics Conference – Dubai

Behavioral aspects in the Design and Management of Contemporary Supply Chains

This presentation argues that too much emphasis in the past has been placed on technology and infrastructure as the sole source of improved performance in corporate supply chains. In fact, supply chains are not mechanical beasts that work like giant conveyor belts. Rather the speaker will argue that supply chains are propelled predominantly by human behavior, both outside (customers) and inside (staff and management) the enterprise.

Understand and harness this energy and whole new avenues of performance improvement will be revealed. To bring this vision to reality, the speaker will present a new conceptual model, the dynamic alignment model, which will guide designers and managers of contemporary supply chains to critical areas of ‘mis alignment’ so that these can be addressed in a more focused way.

Gone are the days of blind cost-cutting. The new era of hi-performance supply chains will be ushered in through a combination of initiatives that improve the ‘alignment’ between the marketplace, and the enterprise, via smarter allocation of resources. This will all be initiated and driven by inspired leadership.

This presentation is based on a by the presenter: Living Supply Chains: How to mobilize the enterprise around delivering what customers want, published by FT Pearson Education, London, 2006.

The program is offered by the Australian National Business School, a consortium of six (6) Australian universities. In 2005 this elective will be taught solely by John Gattorna.

The underlying theme is “aligning supply chains with customers and suppliers to create new value”. The increasingly important role of 3PLs and 4PLs will be critically reviewed, and new business models proposed for managing future supply chains.

This elective is a “must” for those executives wishing to extract high performance from their supply chains.

Living Supply Chains – unlocking value through a radically new approach to the design and operation of corporate supply chains.

SMART2005 Conference, Sydney.

This presentation is based on the contents and thrust of a new book of the same title due to be published in London in late 2005. In essence, John Gattorna argues for a radical re-think of current approaches to designing and managing today’s supply chains. In particular, he contends that the biggest influencer of performance, human behaviour inside and outside organizations, is largely being overlooked in the search for ever increasing corporate performance improvement. This situation must be redressed.

Supply Chain Executive Forum 2005

A 3-day intensive Forum for C-level executives presented by the Centre for Supply Chain Research, University of Wollongong, at the Hyatt Regency, Coolum.

This is the 2nd Annual Forum, and is a “By Invitation Only” event designed to bring together top level executive teams from ten (10) enterprises drawn from across Asia Pacific. Ideally, the representative team will be some combination of the MD, CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, CLO, and CMO, or equivalent.

The underlying theme of the Forum is the achievement of improved ‘alignment’ between enterprises and their respective customers, suppliers, and third party providers.

The format is unique in that a series of expert interventions by the international faculty in plenary style sessions are interspersed with mini-workshops where each executive team retires to consider how the ideas presented earlier can be used in their own enterprises and operating environments.

This is not a training session, and tangible outcomes are required of the attending teams. A cross-section of enterprises drawn from industry, commerce, service and government sectors are to be invited. In the inaugural Forum in 2004, the ACCC contributed to the debate on new business models in Australian supply chains, and we intend to repeat this highlight in the 2005 program.

Transforming from a “Supply Push” to a “Demand Pull” organizational focus to impact on service levels

This paper was delivered by Prof. John Gattorna at the INTERLOG 2004 Conference, Sydney, 28 October, 2004.

Over the last decade there has been a discernible transition from ‘supply push’ to ‘demand pull’ in many industries, especially those requiring agile service responses. There have been many factors driving this change, but more demanding and powerful customers have been the predominant reason.

This, coupled with the capacity to respond quickly and cost-effectively. But such a change means going beyond simply improving operational processes – it requires a complete cultural change and shift in mindset in supplier organizations. Ultimately, it comes down to how organizations can structure themselves to manage the required mix of “push” and “pull”. This paper presents specific ideas on how this can be achieved.
