SOLUTION DAY is a concept aimed at students enrolled in a master’s programme or students in their final year of a bachelor’s programme. The day is hosted by Novo Nordisk and Implement.

On Solution Day, we will focus on supply chain management and operations management, and you will get the opportunity to put theory into practice.

A day of solution creation

  • The day will kick off with short presentations by Implement and Novo Nordisk. Here, we will present you with the tools needed to dive into the supply chain case.
  • After the presentations, you will be working on the case for approximately 4-6 hours. The case work will take place in groups formed in advance. Afterwards, you will get the chance to present your solution in front of managers from Implement and Novo Nordisk.
  • Concluding the day, you will attend the prize ceremony and dinner. Here, it will also be possible to socialise with the other student participants as well as network with people from Novo Nordisk and Implement.

By joining Solution Day, you will get insights into how Novo Nordisk and Implement use best practice supply chain management tools and concepts to solve a real case within manufacturing footprint.

Theme of the day

Designing Novo Nordisk’s future manufacturing footprint

At Novo Nordisk, 7 strategic manufacturing sites today serve 28 million patients in 170 countries around the world. The supply chain network is designed based on complex factors and trade-offs. In some cases, products are produced in countries further away from markets, and in other cases, it may be more feasible to produce products closer to markets due to strategic, regulatory or cost reasons.

With increasing future growth in emerging markets and a growing product portfolio, the focus of Novo Nordisk is on optimising the future manufacturing footprint to be ready to meet the fast-changing world of tomorrow. This is where you as a case participant come into the picture.

Your assignment will be to analyse the current state, understand the challenges of the future and design a solution that deals with these challenges. You will get access to both qualitative and quantitative data, and you will get a chance to talk to both Novo Nordisk representatives and consultants from Implement Consulting Group.
