Jes Bengstrom: Head of Planning, Europe, SAB Miller
“Supply Chain Management is changing from the classical, more heuristic model, based on gut feeling to a highly advanced model that relies on optimization methodology and analytics to create further value. Catching up with the new technology involved in Supply Chain Management is not the hardest part of this change. The hardest part is making employees think differently and more broadly about the many tools at their disposal. Based on this challenge, SABMiller Europe recognizes a need for broader training at our organization. The MicroMasters program meets this need because it is was a way we could invest in educating employees on how supply chains work and how to think about them in an effective way.”
