Tomorrow's Leaders Today

AIAG and Wayne State University have once again partnered to develop and present a new program — focused on “Tomorrow’s Leaders Today” — for high potential professionals in the automotive industry.

Designed for individuals currently at the senior management level with approximately 8-12 years of purchasing and supply chain experience, this three-day program best fits those on track for positions at the director level or above.

"This was a great experience, one of the better classes I've had the opportunity to attend. The industry speakers chosen to present during the Tomorrow's Leaders Today class were extremely engaging and provided a wealth of insight on the current and future challenges within the automotive supply chain." - Past Participant

As part of the Global Automotive Purchasing and Supply Chain Network (GAPSCN), this new offering provides attendees the opportunity to focus on automotive supply chain leadership skills and responsibilities, while building a network to help support their success at the next level. Individual companies benefit as well, as the program offers the opportunity to provide additional leadership and retention opportunities to their high performers.

Distinguished from similar courses by its participatory nature, this development program is far more than just another lecture-based seminar. Attendees learn with, and from, 20-25 peer participants, as world-class program facilitators lead engaging sessions on the practical applications of cutting edge supply chain strategies and tools.

Another unique aspect of this program is that individuals are not only nominated by their own organizations to participate, but also work closely with senior leader “advisors” at their companies who provide mentoring and accountability.

Following the three-day program’s conclusion, attendees are tasked with leading a “supply chain transformation project” of their company’s choosing, where new knowledge and skills can be applied, and business gains tracked. This project should directly relate to the program’s curriculum and focus on an area not previously addressed by the attendee or company.

Four months after the initial three-day program concludes, participants will reconvene for a second two-day session to report out on their transformation project outcomes, including the estimated financial impact on their companies and lessons learned throughout the process.
