A former Caterpillar supply chain executive explores the obstacles to digital transformation.

In this episode of Masters of Digital Transformation, Tony Saldanha sits down with Pat Murzyn, former Director of Global Supply Excellence at Caterpillar, and Raghav Ranganathan, SVP at o9 Solutions. They discuss what it takes to make a digital transformation journey successful, including change management, executive buy-in, and the concept of a “value network.”

Key Takeaways

  • Change management: Pat shares his personal change management success story. He created a collegial accountability network, which enhanced collaboration and helped his team improve supplier performance.
  • Executive buy-in: Be supported along your transformation journey. Measure stages of success. Showcase results.
  • Value network: The term “supply chain” is more a “value network” with interconnected semi-autonomous nodes and distribution links. Hardwiring change is crucial to mastering the future of planning.
  • Breaking it down: To make a digital transformation successful, you need to first define your project scope, scale, authority, and accountability.
  • Identifying leadership journeys: Business leaders take smaller steps early in their personal career journeys. Pat advises how best to justify dramatic transformation.
