Beyond the chaos: what separates relaxed responders from stressed suppliers

New survey highlights practices that limit supply chain firefighting

Where do you stand in relation to your competitors’ supply chains? Are you healthy, or are you falling behind? How do the best-performing supply chains function…and what can you learn from them?

In summer 2020, we surveyed 500 North American supply chain professionals at consumer goods manufacturers to help answer these questions. From analysts to the C-suite, they gave us an in-depth look into their day-to-day experiences.

Download the report to uncover:

  • The top challenges that kept stressed suppliers from quickly responding to unexpected changes
  • How relaxed responders use POS data to ascertain supply chain health and see problems sooner
  • How you manage supply chain’s seemingly never-ending stream of changes without feeling like you’re constantly firefighting
