As a broad based supply chain community, we often context and plan supply chain transformation initiatives under the three-pronged perspectives of People, Process and Technology enablers. I would urge transformation teams to seriously consider a fourth component, that being Information, including the velocity, context and clarity of information. While some may be of the mistaken belief that the element of Information is solely the perspective of IT, it is rather a jointly-owned, cross-functional element of transformation.

On the Kinaxis 21st Century Supply Chain blog, Executive Editor Bob Ferrari has penned a guest posting, Supply Chain Transformation-The Important Element of Information Strategy.

Enjoy and comment.
