Strategy and Execution in Supply Chain – What is it, and how to bridge the gap

I recently wrote an article on how businesses can bridge the gap between strategy and execution for CargoNow and how these challenges can be tackled, enhancing strategies, and effectively executing plans to improve their supply chains..

The article provides a comprehensive look at the tools and methodologies emerging to ensure that supply chains survive future disruptions and thrive amidst them..

As we all know, the term “supply chain” was catapulted into the mainstream conversation around 2020-2021, mainly spurred by COVID-19..

As the pandemic unfolded, it also unraveled the complexities of global supply chains, the disruptions they can face, the current challenges in the industry, etc, thrusting it into the spotlight and making it a focal point in households and boardrooms alike..

The sudden visibility or interest was not just due to the disruptions, it was also a wake-up call as consumers and the market became acutely aware of the fragility and significance of supply chains due to extensive media coverage of various disruptions..

These included port congestion, container shortages, skyrocketing freight rates, and severe imbalances between supply and demand.. These issues, compounded by job losses and harsh conditions for seafarers, painted a stark picture of the sector’s challenges..

But, as often happens in times of crisis, these challenges also unveiled significant opportunities within the industry..

COVID-19, while primarily a global health and economic crisis, inadvertently elevated the profile of the supply chain industry, demonstrating vividly how integral supply chains are to the functioning of businesses and daily consumer life..

It also underscored the need for robust strategies to manage these complex systems effectively and highlighted the critical gaps between strategy and execution generating conversations on how businesses can bridge these gaps and enhance the resilience and efficiency of their supply chains..

While the benefits of Supply Chain Optimization Technology are undeniable and it is rapidly evolving with innovative technologies and applications emerging all the time, there is a significant gap between supply chain strategy and execution creating a lot of problems for the stakeholders..
