What happens after the workshops? The initial concepts will be sorted into opportunity areas and then evaluated by the Supply Chain SLT using three key factors:
DESIRABILITY (Human factor): Does the idea help address a significant pain point? Does the target user want this?
VIABILITY (Business factor): Is this idea sustainable? What has to be true for this to work? What is the business case?
FEASIBILITY (Technical factor): Will the idea work? Is it functionally possible in the foreseeable future?

The end outcome would be a prioritized, short list of concepts that we could pursue.
