Plugging the $100 million gap
What's the bottom line?
An organization's success will be increasingly contingent on the degree of alignment between its business strategies and its underlying supply chain capabilities.
The supply chain has entered a new era. Executives are beginning to see supply chain operations as a strategic asset in improving the operational and financial performance of the organization.
In response, operations executives need to:
- Place greater emphasis on reliability and predictability
- Gather all needed information for making choices in real time to minimize surprises
- Become more customer-centric to meet increasing consumer demands
- Plan for the unexpected
Operations executives need to play a bigger role in the development of the broader business strategy. As the economy continues to change, an organization's success will be increasingly contingent on the degree of alignment between its business strategies and its underlying supply chain capabilities.
