Focus on People in Supply Chain in 2023
In late 2022, APQC conducted its annual supply chain management priorities and trends research. Each year, this survey asks supply chain professionals representing a diverse set of roles, industries, and geographic locations to indicate their organizations’ challenges and priorities for the coming year. The latest survey results show that many organizations’ supply chains are stabilizing, reflecting a broader trend in the field.
The human element is having a larger influence on supply chains as businesses feel the squeeze of staffing shortages. Organizations can address obstacles tied to communication and collaboration by addressing hiring, retention, and employee development.
In 2023, technology plus human insights and decision-making will drive supply chain success.
