Bridging the talent gap: What is being done and what needs to be accomplished to help fill in or eliminate the supply chain management talent gap?
There is no denying that there is a talent gap in the supply chain management career field. This talent gap should not have come as a surprise to anyone as it has been the subject of papers, research and articles in every major journal and trade magazine for the past 20 years. The time has come to build a bridge to fill the gap in supply chain talent. The responsibility for filling the talent gap is a combination of industry outreach programmes to universities and high schools and outreach by academia to partner with industry and modify curriculums to meet the needs of industry. This paper looks at the talent gap and uses recent research to lay out options on how industry and academia can partner to help bridge the gap, or even fill it.
