Supply Chain Digital Revolution: 
Continuous Improvement, Transformation and Reinvention


Dr. James A. Tompkins is an international authority on designing and implementing end-to-end supply chains. His focus over the last several years has been in the areas of eCommerce, Omnichannel and supply chain transformations. As the founder and CEO of Tompkins International, he provides leadership for Tompkins global consulting and implementation business and stresses the requirement for Strategy before Structure and Structure before Implementation.

Dr. James A. Tompkins received the prestigious Frank and Lillian Gilbreth Industrial Engineering Award from the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) on June 1, 2015.

He has also received more than 50 additional awards for his service to his profession.

His 35-plus years as CEO of a consulting/integration firm and his focus on helping companies achieve profitable growth give him an insider’s view into what makes great companies even better. As a high-level business and supply chain strategy advisor, his unique perspective prepares corporations and executives for the future.

To share his knowledge and provide up-to-date information on supply chain and business trends, he developed his blog called “Creating Supply Chain Excellence.” Jim is also a thought leader, sharing insights on business strategy through his presentations and videos, including his most recent on The Alibaba Effect.

He has written or contributed to more than 30 books, including Caught Between the Tiger and the Dragon, Bold Leadership, Logistics and Manufacturing Outsourcing, The Supply Chain Handbook, No Boundaries and Facilities Planning. Jim has been quoted in hundreds of business and industry magazines such as The Journal of Commerce, Supply & Demand Chain Executive, and FORTUNE, and he has spoken at thousands of international engagements.

Jim received his Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering in 1969, his Master of Science in Industrial Engineering in 1970 and his Ph.D. in 1972, all from Purdue University.
