Supply chains are the part of the value creation system that your business or organization does not own. They are woven into the fabric of every business and every other organization. They are always larger and more complex than the organization's owned-operations. They are critical in determining the amount of economic value, environmental impact and, increasingly, social value that will be created. Each student will walk away from this session with concepts, tools and a basic strategy to begin identifying and analyzing their supply chain for opportunities to improve.
Students will cover all of the topics below. In a one-day course, the level of depth will need to vary with the needs of the participants.
Phil Berry has worked for more than 25 years to help businesses around the world make dramatic reductions in the environmental and social impacts of their products and supply chains. He started his career improving the product quality, environmental performance and defining the social impacts of factories. Much of Phil's work has focused on improving the environmental and social performance of the Asian, South American and African supply chains of large U.S., European, and Chinese companies. Some of his clients include Boeing, World Bank, Adidas, Yves Rocher, Cisco Systems, Sodexo, Natural Resource Defense Council, TJX Companies (TJ Maxx, Marshalls), Allstate and more.
Until recently Phil was Nike's Director of Footwear Sustainability. His success there led to the production of many sustainably constructed shoes, Business Ethics Magazine's 2006 recognition of Nike as the "best corporate environmental program in the U.S.", and Nike's winning the prestigious Gold IDEA award from IDSA [Industrial Design Society of America] in 2005 for Nike's first "more sustainable" product, the "Considered Boot".
