More complexity than ever

Extended supply Chains structures and dynamics are dramatically changing due to irreversible forces, such as:

  • Globalisation and "center of gravity" shift towards emerging Areas
  • Cost volatility
  • Fading Customer loyalty
  • Growing difficulties in accessing credit
  • Higher and segmented service levels
  • Product and service lifecycle shortening
  • Growing relevance of Merger & Acquisitions

Resilience (i.e. the capability of facing sudden and disruptive changes without worsening the bottom line), is a compelling structural feature of paramount importance for 21st century operations.

Traditional planning and governance rules of complex organisations are no longer valid: new operations models that embed more reactivity, flexibility, capability of rapidly capturing and understanding "weak signals" are a must in order to put in place and coordinate the appropriate response and anticipation initiatives.
