Network Thinking: The paradigm shift in understanding industrial supply chains

Network Thinking: The paradigm shift in understanding industrial supply chains

How three years of unprecedented disruption have impacted the way senior executives manage risk and resilience in their supply systems.

Over the last couple of months, we have been conducting a research study into the impacts of Covid-19, climate change and geopolitical upheaval on how businesses perceive and manage risk within their supply network. Ultimately, the study aims to enable firms to better manage risk, resilience, and sustainability.

Explore the report to find out how the last three years have impacted the way senior professionals responsible for industrial supply chains view and manage their risks, resilience and responsibility.

Three key highlights

  1. Analysis of supply chain intelligence shows that business leaders don’t have clear visibility of sustainability initiatives, including Scope 3 carbon emissions or the recyclability of their products.
  2. The chain is dead. Extreme disruption from war in Ukraine and the Covid-19 pandemic have caused industrial business leaders to focus on supply ‘systems’ or ‘networks, rather than ‘chains’.
  3. Senior Executives in industrial businesses are increasingly dependent on AI to manage supply system complexity, but are also increasingly aware they have value hidden in dark data.
