Announcing the Supply Chains to Admire Winners for 2017
Supply chain excellence. It is easier to say than define.
Getting clear is important. Why? The answer makes or breaks a supply chain leader’s career and defines corporate value.
No doubt about it. Today, the world of supply chain is an order of magnitude more complex than a decade ago. In the technology value chain, it is a case of when the “going gets tough the tough get going.”
In the court of public opinion, there is a world view of who does supply chain best. Companies usually have a short list of companies they admire. When we ask supply chain business teams to name the best performing companies in supply chain management, the most frequent responses are Amazon, P&G, and Wal-Mart. While we agree that each of these companies are leaders with significant contribution to the industry; however, we do not find that these companies outperform when compared against their peer groups on a balanced portfolio of metrics. We often find that the court of public opinion is out of sync with balance sheet performance. Læs mere her.
