How to Achieve Operational Excellence in Your Supply Chain

As an executive in a leading company, you are driving higher levels of supply chain performance through the adoption of proven best practice methods and leveraging the right kind of organizational talent. As performance improvement initiatives such as Lean Six Sigma, ERP, and Operational Excellence mature past initial phases of application, you are faced with the unceasing need for even higher levels of supply chain enterprise performance.

Having an adaptable supply chain model is increasingly vital for performance. Your organization’s supply chain is adapting indirectly in real-time, even if you’re not actively participating in the process, because some or all of your suppliers are actively pursuing adaptability which forces your supply system to evolve accordingly. Consider this passive adaptability. Your active participation in your supply chain adaptability will have the same effect on your supplier’s supply chain, as they will have to adjust their processes in response to yours. Yours will be driven primarily by (in no particular order):

  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • New partnerships
  • Laws and regulations
  • Product/service portfolios
  • Competition
  • Technology
  • New markets, and
  • Customer/client preferences.
Here are your top considerations for maintaining an effectively evolving and adaptive supply chain:
