The global Mill Products and Mining industries – including metals, forest products, building products, cement, concrete, plastic products, furniture and textiles, are at a turning point as they consider how to differentiate and compete in this age of increasing customer expectations, changes in demand, oversupply and intensified competition. As the world population approaches 10 billion people, the rising middle class in emerging economies is the driver for increased demand for products supplied by Mill Products and Mining industries as these consumers exercise their spending power for cars, housing, and many other items.
Company leaders are faced with new challenges that keep them up at night. How do we quickly integrate acquisitions to release promised synergies and onboard new revenue sources? How do we reduce complexity, integrate across silos, and streamline workflows across our entire global value chain? How do we resist commoditization by embedding ourselves more intimately within our customers’ innovation and operations cycles? How do we rapidly enter, differentiate, and win in new markets?
Tackling these challenges requires more than doing what’s always been done; instead, it requires doing it better, faster, cheaper, and smarter. It requires a reimagining of entire business models, business processes, and the very nature of work itself.
