Why co-locate with SAP-Centric Materials & Logistics

Asset management is nothing without supply chain. Whether you want to build an asset or dispose it, service it or repair it, bring contractors on-site or send your rotables off-site for repair, you need your materials and logistics people and processes involved, and the better you and they understand each other’s needs and work together, the better the outcome you will achieve.

Impossible Odds: A Story of Strength & Survival

On October 25, 2011, Jessica Buchanan and a colleague were kidnapped at gunpoint by Somali land pirates and held for 93 days, enduring the most harrowing and painful experience of her life. On the day of her kidnapping, she told herself, “some do come out alive, the numbers are small but they do exist.” During her captivity, she was terrorized by her captors, held outdoors in a scrub desert and kept on a starvation diet. Finally, after fruitless negotiations with her captors and her medical state becoming a life-or-death issue, President Barack Obama ordered Navy SEAL Team Six to attempt a rescue. On January 25, 2012, members of SEAL Team Six attacked the heavily-armed captors killing all and airlifting Buchanan and her colleague to safety. In this keynote, Jessica will share the tools she quickly learned to stay alive: how to remain hopeful, trust your instincts and dig deep even when you feel completely empty of any resources. Jessica is living proof that the human spirit is indomitable!

Workshop 2: Navigating Change & Disruption Through People

What makes an organization sustainably successful? What makes some organizations more resilient than others to external market factors? What is the role of disruptive thinking in creating sustainable success? Effective Change Management is the key to sustainable organizational performance and success. The use of the latest and most effective technology in a business can be the difference between success or failure. However, even with the best technology and most effective systems, without the successful engagement of the people to drive change, the organization will falter. This workshop will examine best practices in change management and provide psychologically based strategies and interventions to assist people to successfully navigate change. Attendees will also explore the current evidence from organizations who have implemented and utilized disruption and disruptive thinking to achieve long-term success. You will learn how to go about disrupting the current mindsets and moving toward a culture of change and adaptation.
