Your Supply-Chain Job Just Got 5X Easier

Imagine this scenario: The supply-demand gap has been resolved, so you no longer have to spend good money on excess components or on emergency purchasing and shipments. Since counterfeit components and materials have been eradicated, you've been purchasing with confidence - free from the fear of building off-yield products. Your global regulatory burden is no longer an
issue because beyond-regulations design-for-environment measures have been implemented industry-wide. With these and other supply-chain issues resolved, your job just got five times easier.
You sleep well knowing that you can count on swift delivery of product regardless of political or environmental disasters. And you're confident that your entire supply-chain is free of any worker threat or mistreatment for the SEC, Greenpeace, and your corporate customers to find.
The scenario we're painting might remind you of reading EcoTopia or Helen Keller's Optimism, or of the best dream you've ever had. But unless we envision our industry running smoothly, fairly, and without costly impediments to manufacturers, customers, society, and human and environmental health, it's harder to bring about real change.
Bringing about real change is the charter of a Think Tank comprising electronics industry executives gathering October 9th in Silicon Valley to jointly solve 5 of the most tenacious supply-chain issues facing the industry. (See the 10 issues on which the executives are voting to address.) This is not a "conference" where some people present and others passively listen; it's a true Think Tank in which all the smart executives we've hand-picked contribute ideas and collaborative solutions. This day-long, professionally facilitated event gathers visionary executives and leaders from OEM, EMS and supplier segments together to sit down and tackle some of the biggest issues plaguing our industry, and to network and make valuable connections.
