In the dynamic world of supply chain management, no two operations are alike. The variations are striking, even within the same organization. While some companies opt for decentralization, Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) takes a distinctive, centralized approach to elevate its supply chain strategy.
We invite you to an insightful evening during which John Bakker, Global Supply Chain Transformation Lead at JDE, will unravel the approach of maintaining JDE's top-notch supply chain through a remarkable program known as the Supply Chain Operating System (SCOS). This innovative approach encompasses a comprehensive suite of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), strategic goals, and maturity levels that harmonize/standardize regional offices of JDE Peet's, enabling them to work towards common objectives while retaining the benefits of market diversity.
During a unique Vision Dinner on January 23rd, you'll have the chance to learn from John's experience in handling these challenges first-hand. Plus, there will be ample opportunities for networking with other executives, both during the dinner and afterward, as this session is organized as part of the Smart Industry Network Netherlands (SINN) program 2024

The construction sector plays a significant role in contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, and waste generation. Recognizing this, BAM has developed a strategic plan that aims to actively contribute to a sustainable future, aligning with the increasing emphasis and necessity of sustainability. BAM's clients now prioritize conserving resources, promoting energy efficiency, and reducing carbon emissions throughout all stages of their projects, from design to construction and operation. However, it is important to note that while clients prioritize sustainability, they may not always be willing to bear the full cost associated with these efforts. This presents a challenge that many Sales, Commercial, and Strategy Leaders face. Sander will highlight how sustainability practices impact their commercial strategy and how they orchestrate the promotion of sustainable practices in their ecosystem of partners. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity for an open discussion with Sander and the other participants. You are most welcome to join!
