Conducting a successful predictive optimization of a supply chain is a mix of soft and hard problems Unfortunately, it is not possible to take those aspects apart. The soft and hard facets are deeply entangled. Usually, this entanglement collides frontally with the division of work as defined by the organigram of the company. We observe that, when supply chain initiatives fail, the root causes of the failure are usually mistakes made at the earliest stages of the project. Furthermore, early mistakes tend to shape the entire initiative, making them near impossible to fix ex post. We present our key findings to avoid those mistakes.
