Supply Chain Management
What is Supply Chain Management?
It is an integrating process that combines the classic logistics functions of physical distribution and materials management with the purchasing of raw materials and/or inventory and sales, marketing, information technology and strategic planning functions.
Have you done a recent strategic analysis of the supply chain of your company?
You may want to consider the following points:
Is the vision you developed for your company relevant for today?
Are you focussing on meaningful customer oriented strategies?
Are you developing and maintaining profitable supply chain partnerships?
Is your information technology strategy comprehensive and up to date?
Does the measurement and reward strategy reflect the true costs and benefits of the activities to the entire supply chain?
