AUTO INDUSTRY FOCUS AND TRANSFORMATION

The automotive industry is rapidly changing. Tradelaws such as NAFTA are being re-evaluated. Laws and regulations guiding trade, import/exports, emissions and safety may change dramatically. Market growth and capacity requirements worldwide are undergoing change.

New product technologies are being introduced at a rapid rate. Electrification and autonomous vehicles are being introduced. Long-standing buyer-supplier relationships are being disrupted and new ownership established. Lawsuits are affecting the short and longer-term viability of firms in the industry. New firms with new technologies are entering the industry. Consumer tastes are changing as is their view of auto ownership and the role and use of the automobile. Millennial expansion in the marketplace and workplace are changing the norms.

Given these and other likely future changes, it is imperative that current and emerging leaders in purchasing and supply chain management understand and can adapt to the changing environment and implement the critical purchasing and supply chain transformations required to be competitive.
