To stay competitive in today’s apparel, fashion and footwear market, larger and established brands need to drive speed and agility by looking to leverage start-up-based strategies. Startups are known for their speed and agility; and older, larger brands can capitalize on their tactics to scale their supply chain foundation with lean product development methods and rapid learning cycles.

The Apparel Magazine webinar, “How to Innovate like a Startup and Scale Like an Enterprise Apparel Brand,” which is sponsored by CGS, will bring together industry experts to discuss how brands are optimizing their back-end supply chain to position themselves for growth. The panel will address:

-- Current trends and industry requirements -- Strengths and weaknesses for established and emerging brands -- How to conduct a “strategic opportunity assessment” to identify the current state of your overall supply chain -- How to take a holistic approach and create an operational plan with actionable next steps

“In today's fast-fashion market, apparel, fashion and footwear brands are continuously looking for ways in which to innovate and stay ahead of the competition,” said Kelly Stacey, CGS. "I’m excited to join this Apparel Magazine webinar to share some best practices and disruptor tips to optimize the supply chain, just like a startup business."
