    The Future of Supply Chain Is Purpose-Driven

    The COVID-19 crisis drove supply chain transformation and now the spotlight is bright on supply chain leaders to help the business leap competition. But 38% of leaders are concerned that their supply chains are not very well positioned to handle the challenges of the next two years. Many are set up primarily for cost efficiency, not resilience or agility. How will the CSCO meet this moment?

    Gartner’s Future of Supply Chain survey reveals the post-pandemic changes that supply chain leaders must act on now. By building resilient and agile supply chain practices, the CSCO can develop a Purpose-Driven Supply Chain, whereby product sourcing, manufacturing and delivery processes serve a higher purpose.
