The need for ‘Renaissance Skills’ is back. While deep, specialized skill sets in procurement, operations, manufacturing, and logistics will always be important, companies also need individuals attuned to driving important bigger-picture outcomes like greater resiliency, innovation, business responsibility, and cost reduction. One approach, that we at P&C also advocate, is to implement a system of rotating assignments among the various supply chain departments. A deeper knowledge of connections and interdependencies will not only improve performance in their current role but also help prepare them for a future network planner role.
