Supply Chain

Digital transformation is more than customer service

The Connected Supply Chain Lab provides the perfect opportunity for leaders across the business to explore how industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things are turning traditionally linear supply chains into dynamically-connected Digital Supply Networks.

Using the journey of a coffee pod to facilitate the conversation, we explore how typical business challenges have been traditionally addressed across the supply chain, and how advancements in technology, or technology more readily available and pervasive, are disrupting these approaches to realise greater value.

Furthermore, we will discuss how sharing information across the supply chain can drastically transform a reactive business into one that is far more dynamic and agile, in addition to the challenges that will be faced along the way.

Discover the changing role of Finance in a digital world

Less than half of CFOs surveyed have a clear strategy for Finance to address the opportunities and the challenges brought by digital disruption. Over 50% of CFOs surveyed still continue to request education on emerging technologies and their practical use cases.

  • Understand the drivers for change that digital disruption brings to Finance
  • Identify opportunities for embedding analytics and automation in your organisation
  • Discuss the impact on the skills and capabilities of your workforce
  • Explore what is required of a leader in a digital world
