Now more than ever, companies are realizing that there is substantial value to be derived from the sourcing and supply chain function. To provide Exceptional Business Results, these functions must reorient away from cost savings and focus on building value in areas such as risk mitigation, increased sales, product innovation, and shorter cycle times. Companies that do not strategically manage their sourcing and supply chain functions risk long term value destruction in the pursuit of short term cost savings. Any executive will tell you that a greater issue than cost savings is risk mitigation; Fortune-500 companies are constantly making headline because of failure to manage the risks inherent in complex, global supply chains.
In order to transform your Strategic Sourcing and Supply Chain organization from average to World-Class performance levels, you have to clearly define where you are and where you need to go. And, even when the road map is clear and the infrastructure in place, progress can be painfully slow because of organizational barriers. Strategic Sourcing and Supply Chain transformations require an extensive toolkit, robust processes, and new ways of thinking about and doing work. It’s no wonder that only 30% of transformations are successful the first time!
