Marelli’s CEO on the Importance of a Digital Operating Model
Beda Bolzenius discusses the importance of adaptability, transformation, and the development of rule systems.
So thank you so much, Beata, for being here today for speaking at aim ten x Live London. I have a couple of questions I'd like to ask you for our platform.
So the first one is why a digital operating model? Why do you think that's important for supply chain. Well, first of all, thank you for having me today. I'm here exactly because that question that you just raised is so important.
Not only for the automotive business, but for many, many different applications.
The world is getting more complex, proven structures, will change.
And it's just more and more clear that more transparency you've got in more rules you can develop about it. It's just a matter of principle that you can do a better job in running your facilities, running your sales organization under standing your competition, creating a better relationship to your customers. All of that is in there. We had a a great discussion about that here the breakout session, I I think that's the story.
Wonderful. And, what was the key learning from the breakout session?
Well, we had, a great, example, a great business study, about how the analytics behind the system, the rule system that you can develop over time, is really showing an impact to the bottom line.
And, really, enabling a company to grow and to grow profitably. So a very convincing story trying to generalize what does it mean for different industries? It's all good discussion.
And one last question. You have over thirty five years in the automotive industry.
What would be your key learning or lessons learned when you look at transformation and the return on value. I think first of all, the industry you need to accept, that transforming the business is an inherent part of running the business now.
The business has been extremely stable in their in its fundamentals, for many years. Close to a hundred meters. That is changing now. And, without, setting a base in place for transformation without organizing around transformation, you will fail. You just need to be able to adjust to a new circumstances and and to new rules in the business to survive. So flexibility and handling uncertainty and building that so. Absolutely.
Thank you so much and enjoy lunch and the rest of the event. Thank you very much. Thank you, Beta.
