Leaders for Manufacturing changes name to Leaders for Global Operations
Professor David Simchi-Levi, co-director of the Leaders for Manufacturing (LFM) program, announced today that the program has a new name: Leaders for Global Operations (LGO). This new identity reflects the expansion from LFM’s historically broad understanding of manufacturing to encompass all aspects of operations. The program will continue to build on its strengths in production and logistics. After an extensive research process involving all the program’s constituencies, the LGO Governing Board approved the change in name and mission. The board also directed LGO to address operations challenges beyond such traditional manufacturing sectors as automotive, aerospace, and high tech manufacturing, to include supply chain retailers such as Amazon.com and Inditex, S.A.
