Supply chain benchmarking

Without senior executive buy-in, the project becomes much harder, or sometimes impossible to implement. This is one of the key findings of a recent supply chain benchmarking study we conducted. Unsurprisingly you might add. However, the supply chain implementation battlefield is littered with stories where senior executive involvement and direction were missing.

The supply chain knowledge gap, between decision makers and operations was also highlighted as a major concern. Most organizations also complained about red tape and in some cases the lack of a project approach. Overlapping IT systems were also viewed as a major headache.
