    Confident leadership in supply chain digital transformation

    SupplyChainINTENT, by Intent Group, is a community for supply chain leaders, to de-risk and optimise digital transformation through practical, member-to-member knowledge-sharing on:

    • Developing a coherent and comprehensive supply chain transformation vision
    • Evaluating business cases and priorities for transformation roadmaps
    • Drilling down into digital transformation of specific processes and capabilities
    • Mastering transformation leadership and change management

    From             arrows random.jpg           to              arrows aligned.jpg    

    Shared insight happens through regular roundtable-style discussions tailored to address participants' key interests. Outputs from discussions are posted in our community forums to crowdsource practical insights on supply chain digital transformation.

    Over the last few years and particularly during the pandemic, we've listened to our members detail their challenges:

    • 'it's a strategic priority but not very clear what digital transformation means in practice'
    • 'everyone has their own understanding and priorities so, as a team, we get pulled in different directions'
    • 'the amount of noise makes it harder to understand which initiatives are most likely to add value for us'
    • 'there's lots of theory about digitalisation but not much on practical applications in specific industries and contexts'
    • 'the soft stuff is the hard stuff so getting buy-in, transforming mindsets and overcoming silo thinking is the main obstacle'
    • 'there's lots of waste as we're probably making the same mistakes as other similar businesses...plus some new ones!'

    We run regular interactive & private discussions under the Chatham House Rule to ensure candid and productive exchanges that members of transformation teams can engage with to improve and align thinking by seeing and hearing what others are doing.

    Discussions cover four main themes, covering the strategic and change management challenges (the 'soft stuff') alongside the specific process transformation opportunities (the 'hard stuff'). 

    Some discussions include subject matter experts from member-recommended INTENT Partners, others are exchanges of best practice, experiences and ideas among practitioner members only.

    There are no obligations or expectations other than to buy into the give and take of knowledge sharing.

  • About Intent Group

    Intent Group was set up in 2016 and is led by Ed Lawson and JP Doggett who both have more years of experience in B2B networking and events than either of them can remember. Having managed everything from large scale tradeshows to senior-level clubs, they wanted to keep the best bits of those models but add a level of personal connection and continuity that they felt was often lacking.
