Achieving Value Chain Excellence
Discover Your Power as a Mentor and Mentee

October 6, 2011
Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona

Value Chain Excellence is dependent, in part, upon the ability to: manage relationships, influence others, effect change, and build and maintain the optimal talent resources. Understanding, identifying, and executing the best practices of mentoring are critical competitive advantages and not dependent upon a structured corporate mentorship program.

The attendees explored the strategic and tactical issues of formal and informal networking and best practices. Featured speakers, as practitioners, presented an overview based on their experience and preparatory research. Network members formed discussion teams to identify issues in greater depth and compared their results. In the afternoon, the Network Extended Leaders conducted 1:1 mentoring sessions with ASU Supply Chain students in the MBA and Undergraduate programs. The students were most appreciative of such a unique and needed opportunity to benefit from more experienced professionals and to learn more about their companies. Special thanks and acknowledgement are extended to participating members and the featured speakers: Tony Flemmich (Bristol-Myers Squibb), Joseph Richardson (FMC Technologies), and Eileen McCulloch (ASU W.P.Carey School of Business Department of Supply Chain Management.)
