A recent conversation with an experienced person within Business Control again opened up our eyes for the lost opportunities when people work in silos. Business opportunities, revenue and margins lost because processes and use of data is not aligned across functions and in-between organizations.
Can we find a solution over an interview and upcoming webinar session? No, but we can help point your attention to concrete examples of how others have chosen to operate and how a CPO & Digital Transformation Officer view his and other roles now and ahead.
In the below second part interview, Anna Bjärkerud speak to Roy Anderson, CPO & Digital Transformation Officer at Tradeshift. Roy is a graduate supply chain management lecturer at Northeastern University (and how many of you struggle with the untapped opportunities in forecasting, predictions, logistics, cash flow and more in SCM due to silos and data gaps?). He has been CPO at State Street (financial services), MetLife (insurance), John Hancock to mention some experiences.
Interview with Roy Anderson
The discussion surround organizations in silo, how to prove an effect you have yet to showcase, what the possibilities lost may be and what “digital- as-default” may mean in this context.
Roy is inspirational and have years of experience from numerous organizations. Now in an organization building its development on disruption and a shift in ways of communicating and doing business. It is extra interesting to hear his view on his profession from before until now and ahead.
