Supply Chains have taken on a renewed strategic importance. Technology has opened a world of procurement, manufacturing, and transportation options requiring advanced levels of decision making from Supply Chain leaders. Companies are beginning to value attributes like agility or long-term sustainability over cost per unit produced and firms are rethinking how to measure success in a supply chain. Those leaders who reach beyond individual silos to seek answers that strengthen the entire chain are achieving better overall efficiency for their customers.
“3 Ways to Accelerate Supply Chain Excellence” lays out three strategies that firms need to consider to match today’s supply chain requirements. With insights drawn from research by Chris Norek and Chris Craighead, senior supply chain faculty members at Penn State Smeal College of Business, this three-part white paper explains how companies can take action to turn supply chain challenges into opportunities.
