Barkers helps clients to deliver supply chain strategy that support profitable growth in new and existing markets. With digital tools on the rise companies need less of a supply chain and more visibility into a supply network that provides agility and flexibility.
Most existing supply chain strategy were built on the assumption of stability, and designed to plan, produce and deliver on a just-in-time basis to ensure lean operations and inventory. Digital disruption now means that the investment in supply management stability may actually hinder a company’s ability to rapidly respond to changing conditions. New technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud (SMAC), can also disrupt supply chain operations.
