A mere 2 percent of the surveye d executives said the supply chain is the focus of their digital strategie s. Are their priorities misplaced? Perhaps. The same McKinsey research sug gests that\, on average\, companies that aggressively digitize their suppl y chains can expect to boost annual growth of earnings before interest and taxes by 3.2 percent—the largest increase from digitizing any business area—and annual revenue growth by 2.3 percent.” 1
