Bringing Transparency and Agility to the Supply Chain – A Conversation with Josh Betz of E2open

At the North American Supply Chain Executive Summit earlier this month in Chicago we spoke with Josh Betz, E2open’s AVP of Solutions Consulting. He shared some of his thoughts on transparency and visibility in a supply chain, how it informs agility, and how control towers –and control towers by any other name– empower companies and leaders to move from reactive to proactive thinking.
