Supply Chain Transformation: From Customer Centric to Customer Inside - Webinar

In recent years there has been a growing realisation that conventional supply chain strategy and design principles may no longer be fit for purpose in today’s fast-changing world. The paradigm that characterises the classic supply chain model is based upon a linear model which extends from the supply base through the focal firm and on to the end user.

However, it can be argued that the real challenge now is to move beyond thinking about ‘chains’ and instead to recognise that today’s supply/demand networks are actually eco-systems. These eco-systems are confederations of inter-connected entities each with specific capabilities and the customer is at the centre of the eco-system rather than at the end of a chain
