Digital supply chain transformation: cross-industry learning potential beyond technology
By Dirk Lembregts (independent consultant, former CSCO of General Motors Europe, Philips Consumer, Marks&Spencer Group)

Preview

Supply chains are in permanent transformation mode to keep up with the increasing pace of change in digital economy. Technology enablers are critical and similar across industries (Analytics, IOT, AI, bots, ...) but successful supply chain transformation goes beyond that. The cross-sector similarity also applies to the ‘non-tech’ critical success factors (and pitfalls). These will be reviewed from 3 perspectives: converging customer propositions (e.g. between B2B and B2C as B2B buyers expectations raised by their experience as B2C consumers), transformation roadmaps, people competencies required.
