We believe that sharing is caring. We’re all in the same boat with the goal of winning this digital race together and building next-generation supply chains. Let us guide you in making that vision of a phygital world real.
1. Digitize not only your data, but also your processes
During his opening keynote, supply chain thought leader Trevor Miles made us realize that the huge investments that businesses make in IT do not necessarily lead to increased productivity or financial benefits. The problem is that we are digitizing our data, but not our processes. Time to focus on the transformation within digital transformation!
2. Match your NextGen factories with a NextGen workforce
3. Strive toward a fully integrated, E2E & data-driven platform
4. Think about evolving toward a smart factory
5. Leverage all relevant data inside & outside your organization
6. Think about change management when going through a business transformation
Did you know that a business transformation cannot work successfully without an intensive change management program? Sandra Vandenplas, transformation director at Galapagos, and Pieter Van den Meutter, head of customer excellence and digital transformation at Bluecrux, let you discover what challenges Galapagos faced the last couple of years and how they differentiated themselves by their outstanding research and courage to take different paths than the other players in the market.
What was the result at the end of the day? More than 150 thumbs up, brains filled with inspiration and happy faces ready to head home and turn the inspiration into concrete actions.
