You have always worked to improve performance against benchmarks such as cost, time-to-market, product quality, and inventory optimization. But now are you feeling pressure to refine and optimize your product and service portfolio to reduce complexity, build flexibility, maintain/improve margins and improve responsiveness? All while, you are expected to:
- Strengthen your order-to-delivery process by collaborating with trading partners on the demand and supply sides
- Build tighter feedback loops for timely responses
- Sharpen your demand planning by proactively involving key channel partners and customers in the forecasting process
This is a lot to achieve all at once.
