Wayne State/AIAG partner to offer transformative leadership program for supply chain professionals

Wayne State University’s Mike Ilitch School of Business and the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) have jointly developed Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, an interactive, executive-level development program that centers on cutting-edge business leadership with an emphasis on supply chain strategy, tactics and tools.

The Tomorrow’s Leaders Today program is designed for organizations looking to develop their high-potential candidates—those in middle and senior supply chain management positions with a transformative mindset—as future leaders. The agenda will cover critical industry topics including driving competitiveness, megatrends and future global supply chains.

Participants will complete a three-day spring session (April 26-28) at the AIAG Headquarters in Southfield followed by a two-day fall session (Oct. 5-6) at the Ilitch School in Detroit. After the spring session, attendees will be tasked with leading a supply chain transformation project of their company’s choosing. New knowledge and skills will be applied and business gains will be tracked. Program participants will then reconvene for a fall session to report on their transformation project outcomes.

More information can be found on the Tomorrow’s Leaders Today brochure (pdf) or AIAG’s website.
