How Do Supply Chains Feel About Their 2015 Direction and Strategy?

Winding country roadEarlier this year, APQC fielded a survey focused on current supply chain management priorities and trends. Our results highlighted the continuation of some trends from previous years and revealed some emerging practices. 

I recently recorded a podcast with APQC Program Manager Andrea Stroud on the findings from the survey, as well as current and future trends in supply chain. We addressed the following questions:

  • What are organizations’ biggest priorities and business objectives this year? 
  • What do organization budgets for supply chain management tools and approaches look like in 2015?
  • How are organizations feeling about the strategy and direction of their organization’s supply chain management program?
  • How do you see the priorities in the supply chain area changing over the next 3 years?
  • Are organizations using or planning to use cloud services? 
  • What supply chain topics are hot right now? 
  • How important is product and/or service innovation to an organization’s supply chain management success? 
  • What can organizations do to ensure that their supply chain management programs achieve goals?
