How often have you heard someone say that they would do things differently if they could start over? The fact is that most organizations can’t ever stop long enough to “do over,” but the markets, products, and systems are constantly changing. To stay on top, supply chain organizations must become more adaptable and navigate change management effectively.
Change is happening all around us whether we like it or not. Over time, people change roles, new people come in. Every few years, technology changes, and we have to keep up; new products are introduced, and old ones are retired. Leadership and market dynamics are changing, and processes must be adapted. At the same time, customers are demanding better service levels, shareholders and investors are demanding greater returns, and global competition is increasing.
More technology is not always the answer. More often, it is instead an organization’s ability to deal with the growth and changing the marketplace. In practice, that means utilizing existing technology, applying the right principles and establishing sustainable discipline and a governance structure to ensure the process of improvement endures and becomes an entrenched culture. What is most needed are a clear roadmap and a guide that has taken this road before. Just like every journey, there is either a long painful route or a fast enjoyable route. The choice should be obvious, but is it?
