Yesterday’s supply chain management was about focusing on the organization’s existing capabilities, increasing operational efficiency and competing by reducing cost. But the supply chain has become inundated with disruption, innovation and increasing customer demands so, that ‘inside-out’ operating model is no longer sustainable.  A future ready supply chain is driven by customer needs, leveraging data and digital technology to be adaptable and resilient.

Tomorrow’s supply chains will follow an ‘outside-in’ approach, that isn’t led by products and process but by the need to meet evolving customer expectations. Supply chains will become autonomous, self-healing, and self-optimizing.  In order to achieve that, business leaders need to:
