It is likely that you are familiar with the metrics associated with your company's financial performance, but how versed are you in another indicator of financial performance - your company's supply chain? Do you know how well your supply chain is performing in terms of inventory accuracy? On-time delivery? Many companies have overlooked the importance of their own supply chain performance measurements. This situation exists despite the fact that supply chain performance is the leading indicator of excellent financial performance.

This workshop is designed to assist companies with establishing a road map to determine how well their internal supply chain process is running and where improvements are needed in your particular organization.

  • Recognize the elements needed for maintaining a well-run supply chain operation.
  • Identify an approach for gathering and evaluating your organization's supply chain activities and processes.
  • Rate the elements needed to achieve quick wins toward maximizing supply chain performance.
