Creating New Supply Chain Capabilities for Operational Excellence leading to an Empowered India

Research surveys across Southeast Asia revealed that 80% of the companies will continue to face supply chain disruptions. Regional footprints will pose multi country supply chain challenges and there will be pressure to deliver more with less. Labour will be abundant, but skilled labour will be a gap. As a result, supply chains will need to master risk management, developing flexible but consolidated sourcing arrangements from multiple suppliers, adaptable manufacturing lines, sociable warehousing, scenario planning and selective automation.

Supply chain disruptions have been found to cut the share price of impacted companies by an average of 7% Accenture Research

It is no longer sufficient to merely react to supply chain disruptions; instead, organizations need to adopt a proactive approach towards managing these risks in order to reap competitive advantage.

Supply Chain Disruptions

Supply Chain Disruptions

Compared to how things are today, supply chain logistics management was a simple assembly line movement way back then. Orders were taken on phone and delivered by mail with the goods flowing from manufacturers - wholesalers or retailers - sales team – customers/clients. The challenges started building in during mid-nineties, when this simple route started getting replaced by a complex ecosystem of people, technology and processes. Many reconfigurations of supply chains were initially made in the interest of cost reduction, such as by shifting manufacturing to emerging markets with lower labor costs, higher productivity margins etc.

Find answers to the above challenges and many more in the 3 day Masterclass on Proactive Supply chain Management by Patrick S.Woods.
