What does modern supply chain management look like?
Supply chain management has always been focused on finetuning for speed and efficiency. But today’s requirements are different, broader, and more complex. Supply chains must be able to respond to the needs and values of individual customers, adaptive enough to serve segments of one, not markets of millions. They need to support greater customization and personalization. They need to be faster, but also more agile and more resilient too. And they need to be transparent, responsible and purpose-led, doing what’s right for society and for the planet as well as for the business.
What are the priorities for Chief Supply Chain Officers?
To optimize their supply chains amid constant change, today’s CSCOs have a host of new imperatives. They must look to reorient their supply chains around innovative personalized products, services and experiences. They must combine greater efficiency with greater speed and agility, combining the best talent with the new possibilities opened up by intelligent automation. They must look to anticipate risk, increase flexibility, improve security, and build resilience. And they must manage the entire value chain in a more sustainable, responsible and transparent way.
Why are customer needs now central to supply chains?
Today’s consumers have different—and greater—needs and expectations. Now, it’s not just about the product, it’s also about the holistic package of services and experiences companies build around that product—or provide as entirely standalone offerings. These value-driven customer offerings are the basis of future competitive advantage—and supply chains play a crucial role in delivering them.
How do I get started with a supply chain transformation?

We do this through a series of transformative offerings, covering customer-centered supply chain segmentation, sourcing and procurement transformation, zero-based supply chain efficiency, operational agility, resilience stress testing, and sustainable and responsible supply chain strategies.
