Why do emerging supply chain technologies initially disappoint?
Mohan Sodhi conducted a survey project to determine what mid-to-senior level supply chain managers are expecting from three of the most popular new emerging technologies mentioned in the Gartner Hype Cycle: artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain. Sodhi expected to learn that each technology had unique constraints and questions from the supply chain managers. Instead, he learned that supply chain managers saw all three as “indistinguishable” on the survey. Supply chain managers aren’t certain what these emerging technologies will do for their supply chain, based on their expectations and priorities. Each technology goes through a path of discovery to “a peak of inflated expectations” before landing in the “trough of disillusionment.” Sodhi says true learning begins after this “disillusionment” phase as supply chain managers learn more about what each technology can do. To accelerate through the inflated expectations and disillusionment stages, managers can make a list of requirements and what they want from their supply chains, and what they cannot currently do, and share that with consultants and vendors to help distinguish which technologies best meet those needs, thereby moderating expectations. Sodhi recommends sharing information within your supply chain about what you’re actually expecting from this new technology and the mutual benefits that may go beyond your own company and help your market sector. Robinson recommends companies interested in starting a supply chain planning transformation learn as much as possible from consultants and vendors through activities like customer conference calls to learn which technologies are the best fit for problems you’re trying to solve. Sodhi says his top concern for supply chain transformation going forward is planning for survival in the next 10 to 20 years given global warming and other factors. This will mean sharing critical information with others in the industry, even competitors, to help supply chains as a whole survive whatever comes next.

Planning patient-focused value chains in cell and gene therapy
Cell-based gene therapy Biomedical research and treatment Autologous- when patient’s own cells are modified outside the body and reintroduced to the patient Allogenic- cells isolated from a healthy donor. Cell therapy aims to treat diseases by restoring or altering certain sets of cells or by using cells to carry a therapy through the body. With cell therapy, cells are cultivated or modified outside the body before being injected into the patient. The cells may originate from the patient (autologous cells) or a donor (allogeneic cells). Gene therapy aims to treat diseases by replacing, inactivating or introducing genes into cells— either inside the body (in vivo) or outside of the body (ex vivo). Some therapies are considered both cell and gene therapies. These therapies work by altering genes in specific types of cells and inserting them into the body.
