Leading Change in Retail Supply Chain
  • Speaker Travis McNeal - Director – Supply Chain Transformation, Walmart

Since the early 1970’s Walmart has been a player in the Supply Chain industry. Walmart has re-imagined how Supply Chain works in the retail segment operates which people still model today. However, retail changed dramatically in the last 15 years. Competition has become fierce and shoppers want speed and low costs. Those two forces are putting pressure on retail business, Walmart included. Additionally, in the last 12 months, our countries truck driver shortage adds to that pressure. For these reasons, how Walmart has operated it’s supply chain in the past, is not going to be enough and a transformation is underway.

To bring Walmart to the future, it will require a different skill set for our associates and leaders. Different mindsets are needed. And different behaviors are required.

It becomes important to ensure that all 100k associates are embracing this transformation, leaders become the key ingredient to making this transformation a reality. To ensure our leaders can lead our business units through this change, they too, need to understand the role they play. And now that we’re in the middle of this transformation, leading change is a key competency that is required of all leaders in Walmart’s Supply chain.
