Supply chains have become far more fragmented and globally dispersed. As a supply chain manager, you’re being challenged by more impatient customers, shorter product lifecycles, and more products with greater variety and customization. This “New Normal” requires a new approach to supply chain planning and execution based on visibility, collaboration and real-time execution. The customer-centric pull-based Demand-Driven Material Requirements Planning methodology fits in very well as part of this solution.

And that’s not an easy task, as there are many pitfalls along the way.

There aren’t any. Absolutely none.
Nowadays, almost everybody realizes that people are a major driver for a successful implementation of any project. If we would ask the question: “Should we do something about change management?”. Most of you will answer: “Yes!”. However, if we would ask the question: “When should we start with it?”. The answer is less clear for most of you. People tend to wait till the moment everything is clear in full details, till we exactly know WHAT to do, so we are surely not confusing our people. But is this the right moment?
Workshop ‘How to turn change agents into change communities’
On December 6 we welcomed more than 20 participants to our breakfast workshop on Change Management. However diverse their backgrounds may be, they share one major challenge in their organization: when there are a lot of people involved, how do you ensure that change sticks? And how do you tackle the soft side of change? Our colleagues Tineke and Anneleen, along with guest speaker Luc Galoppin, took the participants on a step-by-step journey to climb MountK.
