Top Management Night is our yearly event where we encourage you to invite your favorite professional manager or influential leader, past or present, to attend as a guest of the APICS Brandywine Valley Chapter. This night has come to be known for its excellent speakers and outstanding cuisine, and provides a great opportunity to network with supply chain and operations professionals, and learn more about APICS Brandywine Valley's offerings for both individuals and companies.

Our topic for the evening will be "Creating the Company of Tomorrow, Today"

Become a great company or become irrelevant. The difference between the two is likely dependent on whether you are building something from the past or something aligned with a new paradigm. We’ve been seeing the emergence of a new breed of company, which we call the Company of Tomorrow, Today.

So what does it take to become the Company of Tomorrow, Today? It starts with being obsessive. An obsessive company focuses on listening to the Voice of the Customer and what they regard as important. By leveraging digitization (analytics and artificial intelligence in cloud solutions) to determine what can run on ‘auto pilot’ with minimal monitoring, you free up your energy to working in NOW mode to focus on managing and eliminating exceptions. You create an operation ready to cope with frequent, rapid changes in your industry without needing to change the structure and way of operating the enterprise. You embrace complexity with simplicity and transform the workplace into a social operating model.
