Faculty Spotlight: Douglas Morrice, PhD

Douglas Morrice"My experience has led me to appreciate the challenges the industry faces, the complexities involved with supply chain management, and the opportunities that come with that.”

Douglas Morrice has been part of The University of Texas faculty for 26 years, and in that time has written more than 40 technical publications and developed executive programs for organizations such as Schlumberger, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, and Texas Instruments. At Texas Executive Education, Morrice’s Supply Chain Sales and Operations Planning and Logistics class combines his research and industry experience to provide executives of all backgrounds with an understanding of the relationships within the supply chain.

How does globalization affect distribution? How can technological advancements alleviate the pressure associated with increasing demand? Supply Chain Management is a dynamic and evolving discipline. In this two-day Texas Executive Education program, Morrice presents participants with a conceptual framework of supply chain design. He guides them through the industry’s current challenges and complexities including transportation, sourcing, and location logistics.  Through collaborative analysis of contemporary business scenarios, participants are able to gain insights and knowledge that would otherwise take months to ascertain in the field.

“In a short time frame, executives will be able to apply the supply chain concepts they need to help their businesses succeed,” says Morrice. He believes that having the right perspective for approaching problems in the supply chain can be the difference between success and failure.

Through expertise and application, participants can acclimatize their company’s supply chain management to their ever-changing industry. “Companies expect them to come up to speed very quickly, and we’re able to help them do that.”
