Supply chain is holding growth hostage. Key factors to this challenge include:
Delays arise as information is exchanged among silos
Lack of end-to-end visibility and inaccurate plans.
Priority by silos, conflicting priorities, not aligned with business objectives
Static models evolved from bulk handling, ineffective for omni-channel.
Legacy technology costly to deploy, inflexible to extend
Talent not keeping up with evolving technology and capabilities
The supply chain of the future needs to serve as a growth engine as it connects to all partners seamlessly, with a focus on delivering value.
Digitization enables more automation in supply chains, which enables people to spend more time on analysis, strategic direction, and innovation. Your talent will now be able to develop new skills such as advanced problem solving, decision making, analytics, data management, collaboration (across functions & with machines), risk management and interpersonal skills.
And your organization will be able to develop new roles such as machine learning specialists or an AI ‘trainer’.
That is why an Intelligent Supply Network is critical to future growth and success.
