Performance Management in Supply Chain and Operations

Steering value chain activities towards exceptional performance

Digitalization of supply chains is dramatically changing today's performance management

Customer focus, product complexity paired with shortened product lifecycles, increasing digitalisation, and closer cooperation between partners increase performance management demands on supply chains.
