Supply chains are transforming from tactical to strategic. This new supply chain, requires a supply chain leader with skills and orientations not currently found in many supply chain managers. Here’s what we need to make that change complete, and the steps to get there. Specifically, we focus on the 11 traits that differentiate the supply chain leader of the tomorrow from the supply chain manager of today.  We also explore the challenges of how to develop such leaders.
