WDI Senior Research Fellow and Healthcare Initiative consultant Prashant Yadav was a featured speaker at a supply chain conference July 23 in Chile.
Yadav spoke about successful supply chains that serve customers at the base of the pyramid (BoP) at the 2015 Logistics and Supply Chain Conference in Santiago. He touched on the main challenges in designing supply chains to facilitate the introduction of new products in BoP markets, how to implement and operate supply chains that reach the BoP, and solid examples of public and private entities that reached new market segments.
Yadav was joined at the one-day conference by fellow speakers Hau L. Lee, the Thoma Professor of Operations, Information and Technology at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and David Simchi-Levi, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT.
The conference was organized by Seminarium, a leader in executive development in Latin America and a longtime WDI partner for executive education programs in that region.
