Capgemini Consulting’s 2012 Global Supply Chain Agenda study examines the key business priorities of supply chain executives around the world. The study reveals that ongoing uncertainty around the global economy and euro zone crisis is having a significant impact on supply chain strategies at every level.

The study, which surveyed 350 supply chain executives from leading companies across Europe, the US, Latin America and Asia-Pacific, also examines the strategic measures that are being taken within supply chains as companies seek to maintain business growth and competitiveness in current volatile markets. Faced with an uncertain outlook for 2012, 67 percent of respondents have implemented measures to improve visibility and control within the supply chain and 59 percent have taken steps to increase flexibility within supply chain operations.
