Deloitte – driving supply chain transformations
(Norwich, UK, 5/10/2018)
Deloitte’s supply chain practice is helping companies across Europe implement critical supply chain transformation and digitisation programmes
The role of supply chains is changing at breakneck speed, driven by a worldwide business movement towards digitisation. Companies of all sizes are attempting to transform their supply chain and procurement functions, with varying degrees of success.
And while the arguments for digital transformations seem to have struck a chord with executives, implementation is not happening as quickly as one might have expected. A recent industry study found that while 83% of respondents believe digital transformation will be impactful, only 5% of respondents have highly automated processes.
With such a discrepancy between aspiration and execution, companies are increasingly turning to global supply chain practices to help them devise a pathway to effective supply chain transformation and digitisation, with Deloitte being a prime example.
Key to this pathway, says Dr Stijn-Pieter van Houten, Director Supply Chain Strategy & Operations for Deloitte NW Europe, is changing the perception of consumer businesses and retailers about how effective supply chains operate.
“Companies often still pursue a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to supply chain where the way they plan, produce and distribute their products all follows the same pattern from a supply chain and even technology perspective,” he comments.
