Capgemini & Macmillan Education discuss data in supply chain

Capgemini’s Ashley Naughton & Macmillan Education’s Shaun Plunkett discuss supply chain agility, tech & Covid lessons at Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE

April 2022, Procurement Magazine, Supply Chain Digital and Bizclik Media Group returned to the Tobacco Dock (London) to host our second Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE. 

Dubbed ‘The Risk & Resilience Conference’ the two-day hybrid event featured keynotes, roundtables, Q&As and 1-2-1s from inspirational and knowledgeable leaders in the procurement and supply chain space.

Speaking on Day 2 of Procurement & Supply Chain LIVE: The Risk & Resilience Conference, Ashley Naughton, Director of Supply Chain Transformation at Capgemini and Shaun Plunkett, Vice President of Global Supply Chain at Macmillan Education took to the stage to discuss supply chain agility.

During the panel discussion the two focussed on five key topics: 

  1. Lessons learnt from COVID-19
  2. Supplier and partner relationships
  3. Data and analytics
  4. How the industry can develop an alert supply chain
  5. Sales and operations planning (S&OP)

“Sharing data is really critical. Because it leads and drives that behavioural change that is needed,” commented Naughton. “It creates collaboration,” added Plunkett.
