- Transforming your supply chain performance through a structured approach similar to the “product R&D stage gate process” applied for disruptive improvement ideas and supply chain innovation
- Screening and evaluating novel ideas and technologies while bringing solutions to a “proof of concept” in an effective and efficient manner (fit for purpose)
- Agile testing (sprints) of demonstrated solutions proving feasibility, applicability, and value in real business environments
- Deploying these novel solutions successfully and turning them into sustainable capabilities requires the use of a robust “Standard Operating System”
- Shifting from the functional expertise focused Centers of Excellence (COE) approach towards a much stronger focus on E2E Business Capabilities & Solutions Teams (CST)
- Building the “Corporate Athlete” who is well-trained in energy management principles and masters resilient leadership is the critical catalyst to accelerating the “Sourcing– Testing – Scaling” disruption process to drive supply chain excellence and generate transformational value for the business and customers
