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."

Sharing means caring: Users prefer content recommendations that don’t sacrifice their privacy
"In this new era of increasing personalization, many companies have assumed that there must be a trade-off for reader and data privacy in order to get the reader to stay. But whether it’s GDPR, browser updates or even company values, relying on intrusive reader data might not be an option available. My hypothesis: By understanding the needs of their readers, publishers can make use of the audience data they have while respecting readers’ privacy."

Summoning the Courage to Redefine Forecasting: Upending the Apple Cart - by @lcecdere
"Unfortunately, while business leaders know there is a problem, there is an unwillingness to act. Today’s solutions are not adequate. Yet, few will test an alternative approach. The good news is that new solutions offer promise. The bad news is unlearning traditional forecasting processes is hard. Business users need to be open to testing new approaches and technology solution providers need to prove the value."

Mining Supply Chain Data for Insights - by @lcecere
"So if a technology vendor in supply chain planning promises improvements in costs and inventory, be wary. Pour the coffee strong. However, do not throw the baby out with the bath water. Planning can drive results if the organization has the right DNA. Focus on defining supply chain excellence and the appropriate use of the technologies. Test and verify results and build planning into data-driven processes. Do not treat supply chain planning as a typical technology project focused on implementation. Instead, refine the data model and test outcomes."

Looking Beyond Red Arrows - by @lcecere #scm
"The biggest and most detrimental shifts in market drivers occurred in the Technology Value Chain. Post-recession negative market winds blew strong in this value chain. It is a case of when the going gets tough, the tough get going."

Household Products Industry Stuck in Neutral and Going Backwards - by @lcecere
"Steve’s response was fascinating and enlightening. He said, “Ariba was in trouble. The market shift was dramatic, and if we had made a series of small cuts in staff or direction, we would have had the same fate as i2 Technologies or Manugistics. We could not afford death by a thousand cuts. Instead, we needed quick and deliberate action. Your note forced our management team to act.”

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."

Rethinking the How…. - by @lcecere #scm
"The sun is shining brightly through the conference room windows as I listen to the consultants talk. It is buzzword bingo at its finest. The air is thick. It is comical. The term Big Data is all the range. The market has dried up for large Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and the large consultants are in the market staking their claim for their next gig."

Wanted: Supply Chain Architects! - by @lcecere
"In the last and final stage of network design maturity, the focus is on a clean sheet of paper. The question is not to optimize what exists, but to develop a road map of what should exist. This work is useful to shutterstock_86016574baseline the current state of the business and brainstorm higher levels of performance."
