Building Digital Capabilities to Transform Planning and Decision-Making
Digital transformation has become essential for companies that want to succeed in an increasingly volatile and complex business environment. Increasing amounts of data are becoming available and digital-native companies have proven that data is a powerful catalyst in transforming business models. Yet, many companies struggle to turn data points into knowledge
[Keynote]: The Case for Optimism on the Climate Crisis
The Sustainability Revolution is well underway, and it has the potential to reshape the world, transforming our relationship to businesses, to the environment, and to each other. The private sector has a critical role to play in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement by taking bold action and embracing the Sustainability Revolution in this decisive decade.
Leveraging Advanced Planning Capabilities in the Discrete Manufacturing Industry
There has been a lot of attention recently on using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for demand forecasting. The consumer goods industry was an early adopter, but these approaches are now being successfully deployed in the discrete manufacturing industry too. Specifically, the power of ML-based forecasting can help both forecast overall market volumes and predict which product configuration will sell in which markets. Another high value use case is in predicting demand for spare parts.
Why is IBP the critical capability to generating business value in uncertain times, make better decisions, and respond faster to changes in the market?
Consumer facing companies are confronted with more frequent and a wider variety of disruptions than ever before. Demand fluctuations have always been a challenge, but now CPG companies must also manage quickly changing consumer behavior, evolving global health concerns, inflation, raw material price increases, commodity shortages and more. To deal with the complexity and volatility, consumer business leaders need next-generation IBP capabilities to make the best possible decisions for the entire enterprise.
[Keynote]: AB InBev: The CTO's Story of their Digital Transformation Journey
The consumer is evolving very fast and their demands are getting more and more sophisticated. At the same time, markets are becoming more mature. With the changing circumstances that impact the supply chain, the role of the planning is becoming more and more important. Making and keeping planning as a competitive differentiator requires a combination of talent, process execution management systems, and advanced tools. When those are brought together in one platform, then companies are a step ahead of their competition.
Resiliency in Retail: Transforming the Omnichannel Experience
The retail industry continues to evolve at a rapid clip. Consumers’ product preferences are shifting significantly. Their channel preferences are changing as well, with a continued step-change to omnichannel. Such transformational shifts in consumer behavior create extraordinary levels of variability, uncertainty, and complexity within supply chains. As such, retailers need to respond to these changes while maintaining margins, service, and efficiencies with optimal planning of inventory, transportation, sourcing, and fulfilment. Now is the time for retailers to challenge the status quo, level up their supply chain competencies, and successfully transform their businesses.
[Keynote]: Walmart: The VP's Story of their Digital Transformation Journey
The balance between managing costs and meeting customer expectations is precarious, at best. Volatile demand and disrupted supply compound the complexity, further exposing the deficiencies in traditional operating models. To accelerate the change needed to face complexity and better balance the needs of the business with the needs of the customer requires planning transformation. With new systems and processes, supply chain planning becomes the catalyst that drives service up and costs down.
Sustainability as a measure of Supply Chain Success
The pressure is on companies to simultaneously perform well and do good for the planet. Addressing this combined challenge requires strategic alignment of transformation priorities such that investments in people, process and technology create progress toward ALL objectives. For those companies that already align purpose and performance the move to digital operating models is a critical step on the path to success.
Managing Revenue Growth in an Era of Volatility
As constantly changing consumer trends and supply chain constraints continue to shape the current business environment, many companies have learned that traditional revenue management processes need to be upgraded. Last year’s session established that innovative technologies like AI/ML are driving demand sensing, analyzing and shaping capabilities that will help businesses optimize both demand planning and revenue management initiatives. Now is the time to explore how these technologies can help businesses create a holistic revenue management approach that is sustainable and scalable.
[Keynote]: Starbucks: The Executives' Stories of their Digital Transformation Journey
Retail supply chains must know everything about every sale well before it ever happens.

[Keynote]: HP Enterprise: The VP of Operations' Story of their Digital Transformation Journey
Manufacturers are crippled by the high variability in the quality and low accuracy of external forecasts. Running the forecast on Excel didn’t help, as it was impossible to leverage external market drivers to predict demand. Shifting to a next-generation planning platform automates forecast consolidation onto one single platform and makes it easy to incorporate data from external data providers in the planning processes. Pulling it altogether and leading the business is the full S&OP process run directly on the technology platform.
Creating Post-Pandemic Resilience in the Fashion and Apparel Industry
The fashion and apparel industry may be facing a long road to recovery in a post-pandemic world. McKinsey Global Fashion Index projects that in an “optimistic” early stage recovery model, the fashion industry would return to 2019 activity levels in the Q3 of 2022. In a late stage recovery scenario, a 2019 activity level return would happen in Q4 of 2023. In addition, this industry faces a complex global outlook that includes supply chain constraints, shifts in consumer buying behaviors, and increased pressure to incorporate sustainable practices into the manufacturing process. In this panel, industry thought leaders share insights on how the right technology can dramatically reduce complexity and improve efficiency through the value chain.
Unlock Process Industries with Digital Operating Models
Traditional operating models are designed to run smoothly. The entire value chain has historically been based on the physical flow of products across tiers until the final product reaches its final customer. The physical flow is based on the information flow from the final customer upstream through each tier. The confluence of disruptions happening simultaneously at multiple tiers has broken the traditional point-to-point model because demand shocks cause havoc and supply shocks cause chaos. The only way forward is transforming to digital operating models that consider all of the value chain, all of the time.
The Academic Approach to Supply Chain Digital Transformation
Evolving consumer behavior has changed how businesses interact with their customers. Global supply chains must keep pace, even as business-to-consumer (B2C) behaviors blend into business-to-business (B2B) interactions. Prepare future leaders for such rapid and consistent evolution calls for new ways thinking about the past, present and future of supply chain. Guiding the way are today’s academic leaders who are building the models to transform thought to action.
[Keynote]: Google: The Story of their Digital Transformation Journey
To drive global transformation, leaders must facilitate growth through technology and strategic planning. Doing so requires organizations to develop the transformation roadmap to align programs across the value chain, build out critical capabilities, and attract and retain talent. Creating this advanced vision and strategy enables organizations to drive the digital transformation that is the foundation for future success.
Project Zebra: Reinventing Supply Chain from the Outside-In
Project Zebra is a consortium of thought leaders and practitioners that challenges traditional thinking, helping business leaders “unlearn” inside-out processes and transition to an outside-in planning approach. The problem is that there is no industry accepted definition of an outside-in process and the business value. The work of Project Zebra is attempting to close this gap. This panel, moderated by Lora Cecere, Founder of Supply Chain Insights, will share highlights of recent industry Project Zebra workshops, and provide perspectives from participants on their unlearning and definition of outside-in processes. The panel will also highlight plans with ASCM on how this new thinking will impact the SCOR model and an industry led RFP to test and learn the new planning paradigm.
