Healthcare Forum (Virtual) - 200415

Supply Chain Systems and Programs for Sustainability
presented by Nathan Sparks, Founder and Consulting Partner

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2020. Proposed topics include IT & IT PMO in Healthcare, Healthcare SME/Domain Forums such as Clinical, Laboratory, Research, Tomorrow's Healthcare & Government practices/law, Thought Leadership in Healthcare, and Innovation in Healthcare Technology.


Customers’ expectations for a sustainable future is of vital importance, and that means investors care too. Firms must have strategies and examples to attract new customers and share owners. Sustainability examples are plentiful in firms who continuously work to assess and improve. Leaders must embrace honesty, transparency and continuous improvement, investing in analysis, technology, and positive process change. Firms leading already know their purpose and design their products and solutions with the wisdom of their teams. They build holistic improvement plans within safe culture to assess themselves and their suppliers. They satisfy customers with greater value, have fewer undesirable social and environmental impacts, and higher profitability.

In the talk, Nathan will discuss examples where firms have succeeded and failed, considering these four areas:

Purpose: Operating in alignment with your purpose, in the eyes of the client
Efficiency: Delivery goods and services with the total cost in mind and designed for reuse and recycling.
Satisfaction: Customers and employees benefit from operational excellence and it requires planning and execution.
Culture: Expectation for integrity with principles, and continuous improvement, both internally and along the value chain.


Nathan supports enterprises by maximizing supply chain performance with team culture that embraces new technology with processes that stimulate collaboration, curiosity and goal driven results. For over years 15 years, Nathan led AT&T’s consumer markets inventory operations with global demand planning and supply management functions. Customers were served with processes and technology, such as Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) and Continuous Improvement, and Oracle, SAP, Manugistics/JDA, and many Business Intelligence (BI) tools. Inventory planning and replenishment to AT&T Stores, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and consumers and businesses was achieved with just-in-time supply from Apple, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Blackberry, Cisco, Motorola, etc.

Nathan now leads a management consultancy, SEE Sustainable Solutions, which guides Supply Chain and Procurement teams to design, build and execute planning tools and processes to sustain operations through continuous improvement. These actions are center to determining the level of competitive economics while ensuring ethical business practices and environmental stewardship safeguard and sustain their enterprise.
