The 10 factors of supply chain digital transformation success

Supply chains are getting complex, so having a carefully planned digital supply chain strategy can address critical business challenges, foster innovation, and drive growth. However, achieving goals can be challenging without strategic alignment, clear visibility on projects and IT spending, and a starting point.

The problem is that separate business functions and regions in a company create their own digital strategies. Poor project visibility, communication and inadequate IT spend oversight can result in competing solutions targeting unnecessary needs, resulting in a chaotic blend of incompatible technologies. Such inefficiencies drain valuable resources, especially in times of economic uncertainty.

In this article, IfM Engage Industrial Associate, Kam Gossal, explains how manufacturers can best align their digital transformation programmes and the key factors behind their success.
