Providing your operations & sales teams with actionable visibility has been a motivator for a few decades. For the consumer-packaged goods supply chain, that term “motivator” quickly turned critical as the grocery e-commerce movement evolved through 2020. A strategically smart idea for advanced flexibility coming from supply chain visibility was a phenomenal idea. It was a way to race ahead in the competitive world. In 2020, having that fluid agility across all processes from the production line to the shelf in the store, is a key to maintain competitive advantage.
“Fluid” takes on a new meaning. How do we maintain or gain that flexibility and visibility required in 2020 and beyond? What are the land mines we should prepare for, and how can we gain from the uncertainty.
