It goes without saying that we now live in an era of continuous global disruptions that send shocks across many supply chains. Rapid consumer demand shifts are splintering investment decisions and processes even as global trends become more digitally transformative.
Many consumer-packaged goods (CPG) organizations struggle to identify profitable investment decisions that withstand various market disruptions. As volatility and uncertainty increase, it becomes imperative that CPG companies implement AI/ML-led decision-making ecosystems to advance their revenue growth management (RGM) capabilities. Utilizing advanced analytics to capture visibility of all investment decisions and performances across all commercial growth levers, including pricing, promotions, assortment, etc., is key in navigating through disruptions and achieving sustainable growth.
