Supply Chain Shaman

The Supply Chain Insights Global Summit is over, but we hope the energy to define Supply Chain 2030 is just beginning. Today only 12% of supply chain teams are driving improvement, performing better than their competitors and driving value (as determined by Price to Tangible Book Value). As companies prepare for Supply Chain 2030, we think that it is time to rethink the basics. 2030 is 14 years in the future.

Go Horizontal!

Supply Chain Shaman

Functional silos define today’s supply chain organization. My first job was in manufacturing in the 1980’s. I cut my teeth on early forms of supply chain planning. Like me, the traditio nal supply chain leader, grew-up believing in functional excellence and inside-out processes. Inside-out processes assume that the order represents demand, and that the supply chain’s role ends with a perfect shipment.

Measuring Up?

The average manufacturing company’s supply chain organization is 15 years old. Historically, the traditional supply chain focused on improving costs. Today, more mature supply chain teams focus on delivering value. While companies want to improve supply chain performance and drive value, it is easier said than done. It usually takes at least three years for a supply chain to make an impact on financial balance sheet results.

Reduce Costs: Invest In Talent

Supply Chain Shaman

In manufacturing-based companies, 70-80% of costs are in the processes of source, make and deliver. Labor is an important input with 50-60% of employees of the company reporting through supply chain organizations. Supply chain processes are relatively new. While the practices of finance are over 200 years old, in contrast, supply chain as a cross-functional practice (the combination of make, source and deliver) was recently defined in 1982.

There needs to be a common definition of supply chain excellence. The planning level must be able to model the feasible supply plan.
