In this session, Vishal Mankotia, Vice President, Global Supply Management at Levi Strauss & Co. provides an overview on how Global Supply Management in Levi's is working on creating a digital tread and the digital twin in their journey towards making supply chain planning a strategic differentiator in the marketplace.

It's a change in where and how business decisions, backed by an increasing amount of data, have traditionally been made. It's about breaking down silos between business functions and empowering employees in all functions to make informed decisions in a way that is centralized and helps a company work towards key strategic business objectives delivering Agility and Speed.

Customers enjoy the fact that Levi's, one of America's favorite brands of all-times, is a purpose-driven organization. In fact, their digital transformation journey started originally as a sustainability project that has massively accelerated over the past two years. This will provide unique value proposition to Levi's customers in a hyper competitive market. It is this differentiated strategy that will help them to thrive VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity).

Vishal will also highlight the synergy between Digitization and Empowered teams as an imperative foundation in the post COVID world.
