Now in their fifth year, the Power of the Profession Awards identify the supply chain profession's most innovative initiatives from the past twelve months. Voted for by industry peers and SCM World's expert panel of independent, executive-level judges, the Awards recognize initiatives in two categories: Talent Breakthrough and Supply Chain Breakthrough. The Awards are open to all businesses and individuals worldwide that own, operate and/or manage a supply chain.

New this year, all Power of the Profession submissions will automatically become eligible to win Gartner’s coveted Supply Chainnovators awards! Chainnovators recognizes industry-specific innovations that are impactful, sustainable, unconventional, collaborative, and measurable. Evaluated by both the cross-industry supply chain community and industry-specific analysts, the most innovative submissions per industry across both Power of the Profession categories will be recognized as Chainnovators in May 2019 at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference in Phoenix.

2019 Power of the Profession awards are now open!

We welcome entries from all organizations – you do not have to be a member of Gartner's/SCM World's community to enter. All entries will also be considered as possible Gartner Supply Chainnovator winners depending on community and industry analyst input.
