This element defines how supply channels will organize to compete. Customer-winning value refers to the requirement that supply chains need to continuously reinvent unique product and service configuration and agile delivery capabilities to meet the demands of an evolving marketplace. This element defines the mission of the supply chain. And finally, digital, real-time synchronization refers to the application of technology enablers that network disparate channel databases and transaction programs for decision-making on a supply chain level.
