After years of strong returns, the chemical and process industries face a period of turbulence: slowing growth in China and elsewhere, a post-consolidation reshuffling of product portfolios, and unpredictable changes in feedstock cost and availability. But there are many opportunities as well, most notably in the promise of digital to increase productivity across the entire organization, from procurement to sales and marketing.
To lead in this environment, boards and senior executives must master supply chains, processes, costs, and sales and marketing and have the vision to build partnerships and place high-risk bets on fast-moving markets and emerging technologies. This change means that companies must rethink the talent they need and their recruitment, development, and compensation strategies.
