Gustavo Lopez Ghory shares his experiences cutting through the fog of supply chain transformation and his perspective on leadership's role in setting the right pace for change management and decision-making.

By 2026, Statista estimates that spending on digital transformation will reach $3.4 trillion. And yet, according to a recent study by McKinsey, around 70% of these initiatives fail.

And while each initiative may fail for its own reason — resistance to change, lack of a clear vision and strategy, or insufficient executive buy-in — there tends to be commonalities across those that succeed.

One such commonality, according to Gustavo Ghory, former CSCO of Kimberly-Clark, is that the leaders of these programs continually revisit two crucial questions that act as the “heartbeat” of transformation, keeping the whole organization in rhythm and working together toward the same goal:

  • Is our digital transformation progressing at the right pace?
  • Are we making incremental progress toward our goals?

In this episode of Masters of Digital Transformation, Gustavo joins us to share his experiences cutting through the fog of supply chain transformation and his perspective on leadership's role in setting the right pace for change management and decision-making for successful technology adoption.

Gustavo joins host Caleb Masters to cover:

  • His career journey to becoming CSCO of Kimberly-Clark
  • Why the pace of decision-making must align with the organization’s long-term digital transformation goals.
  • The role leadership plays in managing the pace of decision-making to keep the organization’s “heart” rhythm pumping.

Tune in now to get actionable transformation insights from a seasoned supply chain executive.
