It all begins with the forecast. Whether it's the strategic plan, the annual goals, the monthly projections, or tomorrow's inventory, all managers face the same challenge: developing and implementing plans to ensure that your organization remains a proactive entity. Market analysis is key to staying ahead of the pack. Learn how other organizations have used competitive intelligence to strengthen their position.
Once the plan is made, the supplier becomes a key partner in the supply management circle. Strong relationships are essential for success. Effective interaction adds value that resonates throughout the entire organization.
Put together all that you've learned about e-commerce; the fundamentals are sound. Take the next step and leverage the ripple effect of e-business. Without total integration, you'll be going around in circles. Forrester Research predicts that B2B e-commerce sales will reach $2.7 trillion by 2004. Are you ready?
