Supply Chain Resiliency Executive Survey Insights

The Digital Supply Chain Institute (DSCI) and Bain & Company recently conducted an executive survey on supply chain resiliency that cut across industries and geography. What we discovered was far more than we expected.

Here are some of the key findings from the survey:

  • Disruption highlighted fundamental weaknesses in demand planning capabilities, with executives expressing dissatisfaction with demand forecast accuracy and prioritizing collaboration with suppliers and customers to improve capabilities.
  • Companies are pursuing supply base shifts, looking to increase the proximity of the supply base to customers.
  • Recent disruption has created a shift in priorities; investment goals are changing as companies focus on risk mitigation.
  • Resilience is a top priority, which most executives associate with flexibility, agility, and visibility.

The survey reached 200 supply chain executives and survey data was collected in July 2020 from direct responses. Survey reached across many industries, such as Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, Technology, and many more.
