Reflecting on the evolution of SC Management, it was initially focused on storage of products and its 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐥 flow. Planning systems then shifted its focus towards mastering the E2E 𝐢𝐧𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 flow. With the implementation of S&OP and IBP, SC Management advanced to being the 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫 of departmental business plans. Going forward SC Management’s central role will expand even further by holding the space for higher 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 in business.
We have established a forum of pioneers for “Integrated Business Sensing (IBSing)”. We had already 14 cost-free biweekly calls (Mon 16:00-17:00 CET), where several SC leaders shared inspiring stories about providing transparency, improving collaboration, handling complex issues and the importance of aligning the business towards the organisation’s purpose. All critical imperatives during these exceptional times when automated systems need more of the 𝓼𝓮𝓷𝓼𝓲𝓷𝓰 human factor in making key business decisions.
