One thought on “SPC to host Global Trends and Collaborations in Supply Chain Management

  1. In supply chain management, we like to say that the only thing certain about a forecast is that it is always wrong.
    While researchers like those of us at CAPS Research may not be able to predict the future, we do know that it does not exist in isolation: It depends on the past and the present.
