Yesterday marked the conclusion of the 2nd annual Global Supply Chain Resiliency Council conference and awards event. With over one hundred supply chain practitioners in attendance from around the world, the amount of collaborative knowledge and best practices shared made it an event for the books (at least, within the supply chain community!). Some of the most brilliant minds in the supply chain risk space, from IBM's Lou Ferretti to MIT's Yossi Sheffi to Amgen's Patricia Turney, presented their takes on global supply chain risk and resiliency. As the event was held over two days, the hashtag #Resiliency2016 emerged early on during the conference and gained momentum in the Twitterverse.
The great thing about Twitter is that digestible nuggets of information and wisdom can be instantly broadcasted at the touch of a button and filtered by utilizing hashtags. As such, many attendees (including myself: @resilient_neil) took to live-tweeting #Resiliency2016 to share the loads of valuable information they gathered from the event's sessions to the online supply chain community. As only a portion of the tweets spurned by the event are presented below, be sure to check out the #Resiliency2016 hashtag to get the full scoop.
Supply Chain Resiliency Management (SCrM) is a growing area of interest and study. Yet it can be daunting to sift through the swaths of information to find relevant tidbits on social media sites like Twitter. While the #Resiliency2016 hashtag was born out of the recent GSCRC event, let's take it a step further. We invite the supply chain community at large to use this hashtag, not only to bolster discourse, but gain visibility to target audiences. By keeping #Resiliency 2016 alive and trending, we can keep the online conversation surrounding supply chain risk and resilience alive in an easy-to-find nook in the Twitterverse. Don't get lost in the flurry, hop on #Resiliency2016!
