Over the last 25 years PLM has evolved from engineering-focused document management and product data management to more strategic quality management and innovation management capabilities. Digital thread capabilities pushes the scope even further because PLM manages critical product data throughout the product lifecycle and across the supply chain. PLM provides a critical infrastructure for the digital transformation of the end-to-end product development lifecycle. Tackling this strategic, mission-critical PLM of today requires a comprehensive, integrated approach that combines business value, technology and organizational change.

Next in CPG: Survival Tactics for the Post-Pandemic Future

During the initial months of the pandemic, consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies invested time in stabilizing operations and finding ways to respond to shifting needs. Now, with new learnings around resilience and flexibility, product leaders must start to plan for the future.

In an effort to provide our clients the confidence to respond in the post-COVID world, Kalypso brought together our consumer industry leaders and the latest strategic foresight methodologies around the central question: How might the value chain for North American and European CPG markets evolve and shift in the next 5 years?

This session will cover key implications for CPG leaders and provide practical advice as companies seek to build a more resilient future.
