The world is becoming turbulent faster than supply chains are becoming resilient.
The frequency of supply chain disruption events globally has increased year-over-year for the past 10 years. The reasons are varied; the explosion of data, climate change-related extreme weather, geopolitical conflict, cyber attacks, tariffs and governmental regulations--all creating challenges for supply chains. Unfortunately, traditional methods of managing supply chains are ineffective in mitigating the increasing level of volatility facing businesses today.
Supply chains are the lifeblood of any company, and supply chain performance issues are quick to impact margins. For organizations with global supply chains, the percentage of an organization’s total costs attributable to supply chain can reach 90%. Between 2015 and 2018 significant supply chain disruptions negatively impacted corporate earnings at an average rate of 24%.
