5 Steps To Start Your Digital Supply Chain Transformation Journey
In late 2020, we hosted a supply chain insights webinar in Asia. The event was part of our continuing efforts to facilitate an industry-wide conversation about how to collectively build a safe, sustainable future for our sector. During his presentation, Andrew Chang, Director, Digital Supply Chain, and Digital Products, Asia, offered five still-relevant starting points for resetting, rethinking, and rebuilding your supply chain for the digital age.
Step 1: Start building a digital mindset
Introduce simple measures such as actively managing your data, challenging your teams to be more data-driven when making decisions, and using data visuals to prepare for the digital journey ahead.
Step 2: Make continuous improvement a priority
Looking for opportunities to improve keeps you agile along the digital journey. You do not need to wait for a multi-million project to get approval before starting. Start small by – for example – collecting historical transaction data and review your current target inventory settings.
Step 3: Improve the way you communicate pain points
The way we tell others about pain points and problems is critical to finding effective digital solutions. Getting better at storytelling helps to align stakeholders behind your objectives and gain their support.
Step 4: Set up a governance structure that wins buy-in
Governance structures are not just for leadership oversight. They are critical to deploying expert support where it is most needed and achieving alignment on potentially challenging issues.
Step 5: Get connected!
In this digitally accelerated, VUCA world, getting close to the right people is more important than ever. Making connections is key to building a stronger, more resilient, and digitally-driven supply chain.
