Networks are all about meaningful connections. When we think about the future of digital supply chains and ‘the network of networks “ powering the world, it’s just as much about connecting people with accurate information, partners, and ideas, as much as it is about connecting people with opportunities across plan, source, make, deliver, and reimagining conventional business models. In the future of work, we will exist in ONE multi-enterprise business network (MEBN), a super-highway connecting your business, products, services, and impacts to global trading partners. 

In Episode 38, Christine Barnhart from Infor Supply Chain Strategy and Lora Cecere’s ‘Network of Network’ consortium joins friend Sheri Hinish to explores the supply chain of the future. Concepts like solutions vs. software, single information models, interoperability, real-time vs. near time interactions, functional specialization across nodes, partner selection in digital transformation, and key-takeaways around why change management is critical in supply chain technology implementation.

In the 2nd half of this episode, we explore why diversity & inclusion is important in technology. Who wants an echo chamber of ideas? Christine explores her journey as a supply chain Rebel, transitioning as a supply chain leader/practitioner to technology. We also explore the ‘Network of Networks’ thought leadership pioneered by Lora Cecere, where Sheri and Christine met many years ago. The power of relationships is evangelized in this episode.

Christine's lessons learned as a Rebel:

1. be tenacious

2. be patient but not complacent

3. be willing to continuously learn and push those around you

4. develop you tribe

5. your best ideas are not always part of a formal process
