Operational Improvement at Speed: Leadership lessons from bomb disposal operations in Iraq and Afghanistan

Insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan were excellent at iterative improvement. The British army had to iterate faster and better than they could – it was quite literally a matter of life and death. In this presentation, Ben discusses how to use the British Army leadership doctrine of ‘mission command’ to drive faster operational improvement through empowerment and a shared understanding of the situation and the mission. It is interesting to see the parallels between military leadership to modern business culture, namely empowerment and flexibility.

The Challenges and Hidden Risks of Navigating Multi-Tiered Supply Chain
Supply chain sustainability: when manufacturers think about supply chain risk, the first thing that comes to mind is their direct suppliers. After all, it is a logical first step. But how deeply must you go into your supply chain to understand where your risk lies? A single product may have dozens of suppliers at every level contributing parts and materials. To comply with legal requirements, meet market expectations, and navigate geo-political sanctions, your due diligence must now extend beyond direct suppliers. Gaining visibility into a multi-tiered supply chain presents a number of challenges. If not handled correctly, lack of visibility can lead to market access loss, reputation damage and huge fines. During this session, Sarah Carpenter (Director of Corporate Responsibility at Assent, and co-author of the United Nations Global Compact report on multi-tiered supply chains) will discuss the challenges and hidden risks of navigating complex supply chains, and leading practice for achieving deep visibility.
