Provoking the Industry to Move Past Incrementalism - by @lcecere #scm
"Today, we find ourselves in a hype cycle. Instead of pushing innovation forward, I see companies using the term “digital” as a path for IT spending. It becomes a means to finish projects. The focus is on digitization—automating today’s processes—versus rethinking process excellence based on the art of the possible."

A New Red Wagon? - by @lcecere #scm
"Today’s organization is handcuffed by a forced march for IT standardization and process uniformity. Each project requires a defined ROI. It is ludicrous to ask for a ROI on the unknown. As a result, process innovation is difficult. Break the cycle and invest in small projects with an unknown ROI. Build a governance process, like product stage gates, and focus on process innovation. Innovate at the edge and evolve at the core. Evolve both together. (Note: This is very different than the espoused bimodal evolutionary path.)"

Will the Downturn Signal an Upturn? by @lcecere
"In the real world, companies operate with a Mean Absolute Forecast Error of 24-60%, and have a bias of 9-40%. Many organizations will play the shell game of reporting forecast error so that the numbers look better: either calculating the forecast at a higher level in the forecast hierarchy (not at the item level) or reporting the data as a Weighted Mean Absolute Error. This gives supply chain leaders a false sense of security. Leaders feel that they are adequately buffered against the market. They are not."

Don’t Perpetuate the Hoax of the Gartner Top 25 - by @lcecere
"There is no consideration of relative performance against peer group or evaluation of year-over-year improvement. It is a limited analysis of large companies. I hang my head in embarrassment."
