In Episode 4, we speak with Lauren Acoba live from Starbucks Headquarters. Lauren is a Senior Group Manager of Global Sourcing and Food Supply Chains implementing Starbucks recent regenerative sustainability goals. It’s not just about carbon-neutral, but restoring natural systems.
In Episode 4, we discuss the shift in supply chains, how transparency and consumer trends are forcing the transition from black box to glass box. We dive into the paradigm of “old school leadership” versus "new-school styles", including two examples of new-school leaders at Starbucks. Also, Lauren describes why she considers herself a rebel and how she uses influence and change management in complex initiatives to deliver effective outcomes at scale in a large, global supply chain organization.
