The road to everywhere: The future of supply chain

Successful supply chain organizations of the future will adopt a technology-enabled, data-powered, insight-driven approach, and invest in recruiting top talent.

Tomorrow's supply chains

In the future, supply chains won’t be driven by products and processes, but by customer needs; they won’t depend on capital-intensive fixed assets and linear flows, but on an ecosystem of modular capabilities, delivered through a network of trusted third-parties, that can be scaled and recombined as needs require; operators will become managers; new skills will be required and job roles created. 

Successful businesses of the future will adopt a technology-enabled, data-powered, insight-driven approach, and invest in recruiting top talent. If yesterday’s supply chains were rigid and reactive, tomorrow’s supply chains will be nimble and predictive.

Customers have almost infinite product choices and near-instant delivery.This notion of customer experience must be a core tenet of your supply chain operating model.
