Speech Title: Digitalization of Supply Chain Management: An Innovative Management

Abstract: This paper represents theory and evolution of Supply Chain Management (SCM), as the least innovations in Research, as well as highlights chronological prospective of SCM in terms of time frame in different areas of manufacturing and service industries. The objective of SCM is to incorporate activities across and within organizations for providing the customer/stakeholders value. SCM has been widely researched in numerous application domains during the last decade. Despite the popularity of SCM research and applications, considerable confusion remains as to its meaning.
There are several attempts made by researchers and practitioners to appropriately define SCM. Amidst fierce competition in all industries, SCM has gradually been embraced as a proven managerial approach to achieving sustainable profits and growth. This keynote would illustrate SCM from the raw material materials to finished products, i.e., suppliers to consumer at the various industries. This keynote speech would demonstrate educational supply chain model (ITESCM – Integrated Tertiary Educational Supply Chain Management) as an example of a service industry. Due to application of AI, Automation, Blockchain, Bigdata, etc., this keynote speech demonstrates digital SCM, eventually sustainable SCM for the betterment of the society.
