Empowering Valvoline teams to drive data analysis and bring insights to retailers

Key takeaways

In a special Supply Chain Now livestream, the hosts were joined by Katlyn Davis with Valvoline and our VP Client Solutions Logan Ensign. The two have been working together for over a year and a half, making for a lively discussion about building trust and internal buy-in for new technology implementations.

In addition, Katlyn shared stories from her personal experience using data to tell a story and change the conversation with big retailers, like Walmart. Valvoline’s strong culture of cross-functional collaboration meant that as a Supply Chain Analyst, she met weekly with the account teams and was involved in all aspects of an account.

The full episode is filled with expert commentary from Scott Luton, Greg White and listeners, but if you’re short on time, check out this recap.
