Two years ago we wondered whether supply chain planners might one day be called network planners: “Much like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), there is still a lot of hype about the network planner. Will it be something that we evolve to as part of supply chain transformations, or will it be out of necessity and a need to manage the new supply chain planning landscape?” Now it seems we have finally reached a tipping point. As supply chain volatility becomes the new norm for companies, many are hiring network planners to manage their global operations.
