Supply Chain Transformation

Transforming the supply chain from a cost factor into a real value engine creates a competitive edge and delivers outstanding returns.

From cost factor to value engine

In the past decade, supply chains have widely been treated as pure cost factors. The logical consequence was an increase in cost-cutting initiatives – implemented via process standardizations, enforced inventory reductions, or layoffs. However, today’s business reality tells another story: expectations of very heterogeneous customer groups are increasing, which results in a fragmented, continually changing, and highly competitive market environment. Resilient and adaptive supply chains can be critical drivers of business value and companies’ key to outperforming the competition.

However, the job is tough: an effective transformation goes far beyond merely changing processes or tools. It needs a clear vision, top management buy-in, and a careful orchestration in changing and developing people’s roles, work content, and capabilities.
