Build a tech-savvy supply chain team for the AI era with these lessons from the Association for Supply Chain Management's Peter Bolstorff.
Building a supply chain workforce equipped for major industry evolutions—or for the innovations emerging seemingly overnight—can be a complex challenge.
Consider generative AI, for instance. We're currently witnessing an AI boom that could potentially reshape the way employees work across various. A recent CNBC survey found that 47% of top technology —including chief information security officers and chief technology officers—state that artificial intelligence is their number one budget priority for the coming year.
Just five years ago, the results produced by generative AI were unimaginable for 2023. Yet, a recent study by Accenture reveals that only 38% of supply chain executives believe their workforce is mostly or completely prepared to adopt the technological tools already available to them. Thus, the demand for tech-savvy, innovative supply chain professionals has never been higher.
