#150 - Aligning Internally Before Innovating with Felix Vicknair of Kenco Group
On this episode of Transform Talks, Felix Vicknair, Vice President, Supply Chain Solutions at Kenco Group, joins host Maria Villablanca.
With multi-decade experience in supply chain consulting, Felix shares lessons he's learned through changing times.
Digital transformation or automation turns up the speed for companies. If businesses aren't aligned with what they need in a digital transformation, they'll be going faster, potentially in the wrong direction. The need for planning and understanding the level of dynamics involved in the digital transformation is critical.
Also vital to the success of a digital transformation project is team alignment. Felix speaks about the ideal team for executing digital transformation projects. Communication and alignment are key. A team that is self-aware of each other's strengths with communal communication is more apt for success. He also highlights leadership and its relation to the success of large-scale projects.
Felix shares real-time examples of applying advanced analytics with forecasting. He's used drones on projects and expects robots to be utilized next. In the end, it all comes down to understanding the needs of the customer and the direction they're headed.
