Managing by Exception: The Single Best Way to Integrate Your Supply Chain
If your organization is constantly firefighting and rarely addressing the root causes of what is going on in your supply chain, you are not ready for S4 — and you are not alone. Our findings show that most companies use less than 25% of SAP’s capabilities, mostly due to a gap in understanding of how to leverage SAP to its fullest potential.
But all that’s easier said than done, particularly when process data becomes overdue and cluttered, when functions and departments are siloed and set their own objectives, and when integration falls apart because there are disparate sources of truth.
As a result, all too many organizations end up chasing their tail across the supply chain, overlooking business value opportunities. There is a better way: embracing one sources of truth and truly understanding how to read and solve exceptions to improve process efficiencies and cost.
