Can high-tech companies shift to a digital, customer-centric supply chain quickly enough to satisfy those expectations? It is a challenging undertaking for companies to rotate to the customer sitting at the center of their operations.
Serving tomorrow’s customer
Of course, it is not feasible to make a change of this magnitude overnight. But it is possible to create a vision of what a customer-service focused supply chain could be and focusing on transformational outcome. Working back from the vision, companies can avoid getting bogged down by today’s operational challenges and identity the gaps they can address to accelerate value creation.
A vision is all about the art of the possible. High-tech companies need to develop an ambitious supply chain vision. It may look very different from what is in place today. But it is only by taking a visionary approach that companies can see the transformation they need to make.
The transformation of the supply chain will not happen overnight. It is a phased journey that builds the strength of the core business to release investment in the new. By doing so, companies can make a wise pivot—continuously balancing investment and resource allocation between the core business and the new to synchronize innovation and growth.
