The best-laid plan means nothing if you can’t execute on it.
It makes sense that companies would have put enormous energy over the past few years into honing their supply chain planning function. But in a time of great volatility, roiled by pandemic, war, trade disputes and economic uncertainty, planning is of little use if it can’t be properly executed. On this episode, we speak with Eric Jones, managing director with ifm Business Solutions, who explains why it’s so important to focus on execution. Front and center is the need for sophisticated analytics, which can help drive real-time decision-making across the supply chain. Planning horizons are shrinking, to the point where the line between planning and execution is beginning to blur. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
