Most of the supply chain initiatives fail. Yet, over the years at Lokad, we started to realize that those failures are far from random: there are recurrent patterns that invariably lead to failure. Thus, we decided to start a side initiative to survey the most frequent misguided responses to supply chain challenges through our new blog Supply Chain Antipatterns.
The blog comes with real comic strips produced in-house by the Lokad team.
This initiative is intended as a collaborative effort. Don’t hesitate to tell the tale of our own misguided attempts (you may remain anonymous too). It might help more than a few companies to avoid falling for the same problem in the future.
