Today more than 400 ISM members participated in a poll which asked if their organizations have a strong sense of the ever-changing supply chain marketplace (good "sense") and if they also have the agility to respond rapidly to marketplace changes (good or slow "response"). Only 8.5% said their company has good sense and is quick to respond. About 48% said their company has good sense but is slow to respond. Slightly more than 23% said their company is lagging good sense, but the ability to respond is good. Almost 20% were unsure of their organization's response.
