Like most industries, transportation and logistics is confronting immense change – and like all change it brings risk and opportunity. The Canadian Transportation Act review in 2014 identified that Canadian industries and transportation have a less than 41% usage of advanced communication technologies – but with shippers and carriers beginning to understand the value of new technology, it is changing from “nice to have” to necessity. Adoption rates will soon reach critical mass and individuals without the relevant skills may find themselves obsolete.
The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) has recently released its report Digital Supply Chain: Creating Skills for the Future, based on projected changes in the sector over the next 3-5 years stemming from increased use of: autonomous vehicles, robotics and automation, big data analytics, drones, mobility internet/the internet of things, and blockchain.
Pat Campbell, VP, Strategic Initiatives, of SCMA, and Pina Melchionna, President & CEO of CITT will kick off the session with a discussion of the report, followed by a candid conversation with two professionals who hold both the CCLP and SCMP professional designations.
The discussion will include:
- How today’s leaders are planning to succeed in a rapidly evolving industry
- The role of leadership and soft skills in an era of technical expertise
- What the skills of the ideal employee of the near future looks like
- How to prioritize your skill development for your career goals
- How to make your company’s digital transformation successful
