Surviving and thriving through the pandemic
COVID-19 has turned the spotlight on the importance of lean and efficient supply chains, highlighting the need for flexibility and innovation to deliver in uncertain times.
An Oxford Economics global survey of 1,000 executives from business functions spanning the supply chain, commissioned by SAP, was fielded before the coronavirus took hold around the world, but the data sheds light on core principles of supply chain management that will help companies navigate the uncertainty ahead.
In this complex environment, the essentials of product value chain management (including R&D/design, manufacturing, supply chain, and asset management) are more critical than ever.
This study identified supply chain leaders that effectively find ways to minimize risk and maximize opportunities, and cataloged their best practices and strategies for customer-centricity, visibility, sustainability, and the application of intelligent technologies.
