In March of 2011, I had the opportunity to join two fellow supply chain management bloggers in a thought-leadership webcast focusing on the potential of the social supply chain. Four years ago, the concept of the social supply chain was relatively new, not well understood, and lacking many specific examples to cite.

Indeed after much market education and early adopter successes, leveraging social supply chain applications to enhance business processes has far more meaning and applied uses.  That is especially pertinent to today’s reality of increasingly complex and fast moving globally based supply chain networks.

On the 21st Century Supply Chain blog I provide a guest posting reflecting on what has occurred in this area and how the power and potential of many is being increasingly leveraged within supply chain business processes.

Have a read and share your perspectives and views regarding what has transpired regarding this area of technology.
