Join APICS Toledo on the evening of Tuesday April 21st at the University of Toledo for our joint Professional Development Meeting with the UT APICS Student Chapter.

Our speaker will be Dr. Robert Detwiler (Lourdes University) and his presentation will be “Big Data and the Future of Business Decision Making”.

The issue of “big data” is ever present in seminars, conferences, and articles on the future of management in the 21st century. Businesses are spending vast amounts of resources on data collection, mining, and software programs to make better decisions on issues related to customers, employees and the competition. This presentation will focus on the macro issues facing businesses with the “big data” issue, in addition to those issues now creating new pressures on managers and leaders to get results. In addition, we will discuss the need to not overlook human judgment and “gut instincts” in making decisions with an overwhelming amount of data and information.

$25 for APICS professional members, $30 for guests, $15 for students.

APICS is the leading professional association for supply chain and operations management.
