Power up Supply Chain Planning Performance

A webcast for improving your consumer products Supply Chain

Watch the Webcast

At the beginning of the century, consumer products companies were unquestionable supply chain thought leaders. Consolidation and massive restructuring, however, resulted in industry-wide declines in growth, operating margin, inventory, and customer service. 

In this webcast we explore five main factors and provide key steps for improvement: 

  • Alignment

    Organizational alignment issues grew – and continue to do so. The gaps between operational and commercial teams are a barrier to improving performance. 

  • Talent

    The talent gap in consumer products companies widened with greater dissatisfaction among supply chain planners. 

  • Complexity

    Complexity increased, but few managed to eliminate bad complexity and build efficient, effective processes to manage a more complex product flow. 

  • A decline in Innovation

    Technology innovation declined. The industry went from 21% to 4% innovators. The focus on IT standardization drove a decline in process innovation. 

  • Lack of Governance

    As organizations grew, few companies built well-defined governance models to guide decision-making. 

Lora Cecere, Founder of Supply Chain Insights, and Camille Walker from Wolters Kluwer CCH Tagetik Supply Chain Planning explore specific actions to take to power up supply chain performance.
