It must be slow, because it has taken me over two decades of study, research and practice to come to the conclusion that the way we are organizing our supply chains is deeply flawed, and indeed we are setting ourselves up to fail from the outset by using conventional silo structures. It's akin to tackling a problem in the electronic age with the tools of a previous era, and no matter how you dress it up and fudge it, the results won't get better. So it's time to break the old models and try something new, just as some of our leading global companies have done and continue to do.
