In a context of fierce competition, declining profit margins, digitization pressure and high customer expectations, most companies are naturally inclined to react in a fire fighting mode to these challenges but only a few are making significant changes to be ahead of them.
B2G will present the 2017 APICS* Excellence award winning case study based on a global industrial leader; one of very few which decided to spearhead a major transformation program of its global supply chain operations to outperform its competitors and to position itself as a top performer.
During this breakfast talk, we will present:
- How this company used the SCOR framework** to successfully support and speed up its transformation program
- The dramatic results achieved beyond the ROI and financial targets
*APICS is the leading association for supply chain management for research, education and certification programs that elevate supply chain excellence, innovation and resilience.
**SCOR framework - The supply chain operations reference model (SCOR) is a standard framework, improvement methodology, and benchmarking tools that helps organizations make dramatic and rapid improvements in supply chain performance. Its ultimate objective is to build a superior supply chain that is integrated with the overall organizational strategy, aided by common supply chain definitions, metrics, and strategies.
