2. Determine what you want out of your future program
After you’ve done a full diagnostic and maturity assessment, it is time to develop a strategy to determine what you want out of your future program. Figuring out how you can reach your goals will set your digital supply chain transformation in motion.
Whether your target state is basic or advanced digital supply chain, you need to know what parts of your current plan need to be optimized. Analyze your findings from your discovery and assessment period and use them as a guide for planning. You will also need a course of action for integration. A data integration plan will ensure that your organization remains safe and secure throughout this process.
Next, outline a skill set development plan. If your organization’s digital supply chain management skills aren’t where you need them to be to reach your target state, work in the time and resources required to make sure your business as a whole can assist in the success of the program.
Figuring out what you want from your future program also means having a blueprint for future decisions. Double check that you are considering all potential financial chargebacks and you’re thoroughly aware of policy definitions before you move onto the next phase in this transformation.
