5 Misconceptions of
Supply Chain Transformations


Change always finds some resistance, especially when it involves a large group of people and processes. All leaders are looking forward to achieving lean, demand-driven supply chains. However, the journey to reach that goal is blocked by paradigms that are difficult to overcome, and which discourage organizations from this much-needed transformation. We’ve gathered the top 5 misconceptions of supply chain transformations.

1. ‘If I let go of stocks, I’ll miss deliveries’ – the inventory safety paradigm

2. ‘If I reduce the batch size, I’ll be inefficient’ – one-piece-flow

3. ‘There is no time for improvement’ – improvement is for the Lean teams

4. Knowing it all – from theory to practice

5. My organization is too complex – pilot to scale
