Supply Chain Innovation Award 2021
Call for Submissions: January 13, 2021 – April 1, 2021
Throughout the last few years of economic, business and technological change, supply chains have proven to be resilient and able to meet the challenges posed by rising customer expectations and a volatile business environment. Supply chain management (SCM) professionals have had to adapt to remain efficient and responsive especially when facing disruptions such as COVID-19. Company leaders who are able to communicate their significant and proven achievements can not only positively affect return on investment and performance at their own companies, they can also give back to the industry and to their peers by sharing their stories. 
For over 15 years, supply chain teams worldwide have been submitting their cases to the Supply Chain Innovation Award™ (SCIA) for the opportunity to receive recognition from their industry peers on a global stage.
This award program receives submissions from creative innovators every year. A panel of reviewers, consisting of members of CSCMP's Research Strategies Committee (RSC) and the editorial board of SupplyChainBrain magazine, review and select submissions of "Innovation in Action" from the top innovative teams who become the finalists that present their cases in-person at CSCMP’s EDGE Conference. 
If your supply chain team has developed some SCM collaborative innovation(s) that could help advance the overall supply chain profession, consider sharing your story through the Supply Chain Innovation Award™ competition.
Please note that this award requires your team to deliver the same presentation twice. The first is virtually in August (solely presented to the SCIA Committee). The same speakers must deliver the same presentation live and in-person at EDGE in September.
