David Food

Head of Supply Chain at Board International

Egham, United Kingdom

For me, every day is full, full of opportunity, full of potential, full of choices. Normally shared with others who are looking to understand better, gain clarity and insight and make choices that will make a difference to their teams, their businesses or their supply chains.

I find the accelerated pace of change is like kite flying, you have to be sensitive to the wind and catch the next gust to take you higher. The privilege of helping supply chain teams to understand better and strategise more clearly is both an ah-ha moment for me but also for all those involved.

Using intelligent technologies to automate the simple tasks to unleash more time and space for innovation and change, means I have to stay connected and socially engaged as there is always something new to learn and apply. Being in the midst of the conversation means I get to cover a lot of ground and know a lot of people, the handshaking and coffees have been replaced by zooming/teams but the opportunity to introduce and facilitate catalytic conversations is still at the centre of what I do.

Seeing people take intelligent procurement systems to market gives me such a buzz. Helping to enlarge executives worlds through educational experiences that lay the foundations for the adoption, of Supply Chain Control Towers bringing accelerated change. Adding responsive machine learning to adapt and improve forecasting into a large global company that means more profit but also less waste and as a result, a better planet puts a smile on my face as I walk the dog and consider the beauty of creation.

I have grown a broad set of interests and experience that has added value to teams who have generated benefit out of supply chain, automated marketing or social media. I love evangelising on supply chain (Blockchain, Big Data, AI, drones, Machine learning and 3D printing) and social media helps me bring a prophetic edge to future thinking.

Planning for variability: A current trend in Supply Chain

As economies pick up, volume has returned to many markets, and revenue grows. However, profitability is still at risk as uncertainty and variability increase supply and fulfillment costs. Variability in demand – both in location and pack configuration – leads to noisier and less stable demand history. The resulting delay in supply impacts cost price and lead time which, ultimately, has an overall effect on the bottom line.

It could be a nightmare for everyone trying to do so, but not for Santa, as he has the best Logistics, Supply Chain and updated platform to manage things from ent-to-end all through this cheerful-magic season.

The tradition has by far gone beyond millions of children, always considering that Santa is watching them all and knows everything! Are you one of the million likely well-behaved children Santa will deliver the most-desired gifts when he comes?
