Supply chain resilience

Better able to face unpredictability and risks

Global disruption is increasingly forcing companies to examine the toughness and resilience of their supply chains. The current unpredictability and the increase in risks require them to be able to switch quickly within their supply chains so as to maintain production and distribution to the maximum extent. Transparency within the chain is an absolute precondition for this.

Operations Transformation

The world is more unpredictable and more fraught with risk

As regards their supply chains, companies have for years focused above all on efficiency – that’s logical, because efficiency means effective production and distribution, and low costs. But since the Covid-19 pandemic and then the war in Ukraine, things have changed. These days, you can't talk about just “incidents” any more. The world has become more unpredictable and more fraught with risk.

Moreover, companies are increasingly required to comply with ESG guidelines. This means, for example, that they must be aware of the working conditions not only at their direct suppliers but also at those suppliers’ own suppliers.

Better together

Better together

Ecosystems hold huge business potential, and represent a promising way to tackle big societal problems. Let’s start getting ecosystems right.
As any school-aged child knows, ecosystems are places in nature where living things—plants, animals, microorganisms—work together with the environment, and everything plays its part to help the whole. Sure there’s competition. Creatures eat one another all the time in gruesome (and highly streamable) ways. Nevertheless, the ecosystem thrives. The same is true in business ecosystems, as many organizations work across industry boundaries to provide what customers need, while creating value beyond what any firm could achieve alone. Collaborative? Absolutely. Competitive? That too, more so than ever. Companies that overlook or misjudge ecosystems do so at their peril.
