STRATEGIC SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
THE 5 DISCIPLINES FOR TOP PERFORMANCE
SHOSHANAH COHEN & JOSEPH ROUSSEL
Strategic Supply Chain Management is the authoritative, all-in-one
reference and guidebook for creating value and competitive advantage for
each core supply chain process: Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, and Return.
This book helps you understand the five core disciplines that arise from
best practices and advanced systems in supply chain management. Those
1. View you supply chain as a strategic asset and develop a supply chain
strategy that supports your organization's overall business strategy and
chosen basis of competition.
2. Develop an end-to-end process architecture and manage your business
practices and supporting information systems to continuously address the
needs of your organization
3. Design your organization for performance and ensure you have the
skills necessary to develop and manage the complex supply chains of the
4. Build the right collaborative model and continuously improve your
relationships with your supply chain partners
5. Use metrics to drive business success and manage continuous
improvement within the supply chain
Core Disciplines 1: View your Supply Chain as a Strategic Asset
If you're like many companies, you only think about changing your supply
when something's broken - inventory levels are too high, customers are
complaining about poor service, or a supplier is late with a critical
shipment. Or maybe a benchmarking analysis shows that your supply chain
performance is sub par relative to others in your industry.
Strategic supply chain management is more than just innovation for the
sake of being innovative. It's creating a unique supply chain
configuration that drives your strategic objectives forward. To get the
most from your supply chain, you need to consider five critical
configuration components: operations strategy, outsourcing strategy,
channel strategy, customer service strategy, and asset network.
Your decisions around these components and how they play together define
your supply chain strategy. These configuration components are the
fundamental building blocks of your supply chain strategy. However, to
drive forward your strategic business objectives and really gain a
competitive edge, these components and the choices you make about each
one must be aligned with: business strategy, customers' needs, power
position, and adaptive.
Core Discipline 2: Develop an End-to-End Process Architecture
Like many major construction project, your supply chain improvement
efforts need a blueprint to succeed. Without a blueprint, you won't be
able to envision how the many pieces fit together within the existing
infrastructure to form an integrated whole - and you'll encounter
delays, rework, and escalating costs. In supply chain management, that
blueprint is your supply chain architecture.
Your supply chain architecture details the process, applications, and
information needed to improve and evolve your supply chain. It
integrates rules about the process relationships between business
entities and ensures alignment between process and supply chain
infrastructure (information technology and physical assets, such as
warehouses, factories, etc.)
Companies with supply chain architectures in sync with their business
goals have better overall business performance. Their supply chains are
"fit for purpose". They're easier to implement and operate. And perhaps
most important, they can be reconfigured quickly as business needs
change - a valuable source of competitive advantage.
Core Discipline 3: Design Your Organization for Performance
To provide effective end-to-end supply chain management, the
organization should include all the core supply chain processes as well
as the supporting infrastructure. An integrated organization requires
new skills and a new way of thinking about organizational structure. The
complexity of today's supply chains and the advent of highly
sophisticated technologies have fundamentally changed the skills needed
within the supply chain organization. As a result, companies face three
- Determining how to structure the organization
- Defining the roles and responsibilities
- Finding the right people with the right skills
Core Discipline 4: Build the Right Collaborative Model
Collaboration is the cornerstone of effective supply chain management.
As companies continue to narrow their strategic focus to a smaller
number of core competencies, the skills and talents of outside partners
become more critical. This creates a growing reliance on resources that
you may not control directly and on strategies that you may have no hand
An effective collaborative relationship can have major strategic and
financial benefits. It can accelerate entry into a new market, increase
flexibility, and provide access to expertise not available within your
own company. It can deliver cost savings or increased revenues - or a
combination of both. Collaboration is a business arrangement that
changes the overall dynamics between two or more partners. And
successful collaboration depends on ability of both you and your partner
to execute according to your mutual agreement.
Core Discipline 5: Use Metrics to Drive Business Success
Why measure? Measurement is the only way to understand whether process
performance is improving or worsening and whether action is required.
Since a supply chain strategy is based on a company's overall strategic
direction and core competencies, you'll need to choose carefully the
metrics that make sense as signals of performance to your objectives.
