Speed as the True Innovation in Supply Chain

Set full-speed ahead; our destination is improvement. CJ Wehlage writes about how velocity is the next great step for supply chains. Velocity means knowing sooner, acting faster, and asking end-to-end questions. What makes this situation special however is that added speed is precisely a consequence of better processes, especially as it pertains to planning ahead. If you are constantly “fighting fires,” it means you are not adequately forecasting for potential problems. A good way to act faster is to align all nodes so that you are working off the same plan. Customers have a variety of options these days and the technology with which to make purchasing decisions quickly, and supply chains must be working at equal speed if they are to remain viable.
