Friday Factoid: Supply Chain Management at the Stanford GSB

Close to Silicon Valley—arguably the technology capital of the world—the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) is well known for developing leaders in the field of technology and for its tech investment. However, the GSB is not as well known for its investment in resources dedicated to the manufacturing sector, which include the Global Supply Chain Management Forum.

The Global Supply Chain Management Forum is a research institute that partners with industrial organizations and researchers at the GSB. By collaborating with 25 affiliate companies, including Cisco Systems, Hitachi, UPS and the Walt Disney Company, the forum seeks to, according to its Web site, “identify, document, research, develop and disseminate best practices in a dynamic and increasingly global economic business environment.” In the spring of 2010, the forum hosted an Executive Roundtable on the topic of “Turning Supply and Demand Uncertainty into a Competitive Advantage” and a one-day Responsible Supply Chains Conference with the Stanford Center for Social Innovation entitled “Collaboration for the Greater Good: Social and Environmental Responsibility in the Global Supply Chain.” Supply chain is a management niche—one that can certainly be “filled” at Stanford.
