Stabilize, Balance and Reimagine

There are new challenges in supply chain management: Cost and efficiency pressure to secure and expand one's competitive position; supplier failures and delivery bottlenecks; price sensitivity and demand fluctuations in the sales market.

But the pressure also exists internally, e.g. due to conflicting goals in the departments, time-consuming reporting requirements from management, staff shortages and the expectation that the supply chain will run smoothly and defy every challenge, even the unforeseeable ones, of course.

Keyword VUCA

Many of these challenges are reflected in the new buzzword VUCA, which stands for the words volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Apt - especially in view of the events of the past two years. Many tried and tested processes have fallen apart at the seams and the lean and just-in-time strategies of the past have collapsed in many places. International logistics has come apart at the seams and yesterday's strategies need to be reconsidered and put to the test.
