Calling all supply chains: If anyone knows the importance of strategic foresight and futures thinking in your world, it’s Nick Little. He’s Assistant Director of Executive Development Programs in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University (MSU). A fellow Brit, Nick has extensive industry and international experience in supply chain management on both sides of the Atlantic. A former manager within British Rail, Nick currently heads both the Railway Management Program and Custom Programs at MSU.
I invited him to come online and speak with me about how much strategic foresight went on in industries that are heavily involved in supply chains. During our 14-minute conversation we touched on topics including autonomous trucks, artificial intelligence and just how much of a futurist mindset we might expect to find in today’s organizations.MSU's Nick Little speaks to Dr. Liz Alexander about autonomous trucks, AI & if supply chain professionals show enough strategic foresight.
