Global supply chains are being challenged to digitally transform their entire ecosystem and technology stack, but it isn’t a simple task. Who should be included in your new digital model of your supply chain, what will they contribute and how will that be shared and consumed? What are the benefits?
To use a common scenario as a metaphor, building a digital supply chain has many of the same characteristics as a well-orchestrated potluck dinner party. It leverages each participant’s strength – allowing for specialization and economies of scale. But it requires coordination and collaboration among the various participants to achieve success. If done properly, each participant’s contribution enhances the value of the whole. But the dispersed activities place a premium on both collaboration and visibility into the linkages between activities. Furthermore, the complexity and interdependency of activities can magnify the positive and negative outcomes.
