Today’s markets are more and more volatile and competitive. On the one hand, there is continuously high competitive pressure driven by higher market transparency, more competitors as well as higher price sensitivity of customers. On the other hand, the customers seek to fulfill their specific demands more quickly than ever, innovation cycles have become shorter and customer loyalty has decreased significantly. Also, supply uncertainty has increased due to globalization effects leading to a shift to emerging countries and thus to global sourcing markets. This also rises the risks for disruptions in the supply chain.
It is critical for organizations to understand to which degree they are influenced by demand or supply uncertainty. Different degrees of uncertainty require the organization’s processes to be adequately designed to meet the corresponding market challenges.
