The Digital Supply Chain Institute (DSCI) is a research institute focused on the evolution of enterprise supply chains in the digital economy and the creation and practical application of supply chain management best practices.
The DSCI’s work is fielded by the Center for Global Enterprise (CGE) and the Global Experts Group (GEG), a team comprised of top supply chain executives from companies around the world. The GEG acts as the principal mechanism to identify and develop the research and applied management learnings.
The Institute focuses on key management areas of the digital supply chain:
- Demand: real-time continuous engagement with customers
- People: culture and organization
- Technology: enterprise/platform agility and customer visibility
- Risk: risk management capabilities and supply chain security
History of the Digital Supply Chain Institute
DSCI began as an initiative at CGE to research and write a white paper about best practices for global enterprises seeking to understand how to build and transition to a Digital Supply Chain. DSCI convened 23 global companies to serve as members of the GEG to discuss the most pressing issues surrounding the Digital Supply Chain. Their contributions resulted in DSCI’s first white paper, Digital Supply Chains: A Frontside Flip. The paper received international media attention which motivated the formation of the Institute.
