The SAMA Academic Forum is intended to spark animated dialogue over shared interests between current academic research in strategic account management and the connections to the practical challenges and objectives of our SAM community, resulting in more thought-provoking insights and next-level ideas to put into practice. This year the panel will consist of Dr. Noel Capon, R.C. Kopf Professor of International Marketing at Columbia University, Dr. Douglas Lambert, Director of the Global Supply Chain Forum at Ohio State University, and practitioners from SKF. The discussion will focus on Strategic Value Co-Creation, and include presentations on strategic customer value, formalized processes to create strategic customer value, and the application to the SAM community.

During the forum attendees are invited to offer feedback and propose new topics for future research. We encourage your participation in whatever role or capacity you support your company's strategic/global accounts endeavors.
