“The challenge for companies often lies not in designing their digital strategy, but in executing it,” comments Cordon, Professor of Strategy and Supply Chain Management at IMD Business School in Lausanne.

‘The majority of European producers are only in the first phase of adaption of a digital supply chain’, concludes Janet, Professor at the University of Warwick.

‘When we started the digital transformation in 2013, we did not realize what that meant at the time’, admits Dirk, Chief Supply Chain Officer at Henkel Laundry & Home Care.
