Complexity is not a new concept for wholesaler-distributors; they establish
competitive advantage by adapting more quickly to new sources of market complexity than their competitors. Beyond suppliers and customers,
distributors face challenges from economic conditions, regulation, competitor strategies, technological and social change, etc. As a result, distributors constantly refine and enhance their ability to adapt to these new scenarios – whether it’s identifying profit leakage in channel compensation, determining the right price for a given customer, or managing working capital through effective inventory and accounts receivable management.
Developing an analytics capability, however, is easier said than done. Based on cutting-edge research into distributor-focused business analytics, this program provides executives with insight into business analytics opportunities and capabilities, and enables them to develop their own analytics program.
