Delivering accelerated, sustainable improvements across the supply chain and operations

  • The global pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities in the highly complex consumer goods and retail (CG&R) supply chain
  • Business leaders across the sector are under enormous pressure to quickly limit short-term disruption, support recovery in the mid-term, and ensure greater supply chain agility, resilience and optimization in the longer term while ensuring compliance with stringent regulations
  • Businesses need to de-risk by rebalancing the supply chain and operations with a more strategic mix of local, regional and global 
  • Rebalancing to meet the changes of a post-pandemic world will require a new, more agile approach to the way forecasting and planning are carried out
  • The industry needs to adopt emerging technologies and develop agile, data-centric business models to create greater value across the end-to-end supply chain and operations

Board directors are asking CEOs detailed questions on what they are doing to support recovery, identify opportunities, and mitigate the risk associated with their supply chain and operations. They want to understand how the organization plans to use data analytics to rapidly develop transparency, visibility, agility and predictive demand planning to fulfill the new requirements of B2B, B2C and the needs of the actual buyer. What will you tell your board?
