Supply Chain Security

My secret to securing your supply is to go right back to primary production and look beyond the immediate issues.

The business expectations on supply chain functions are greater than ever. Reduced stock holding, improved quality, short lead times, waste minimisation, flexibility to ever changing business forecasts – the list goes on.

 

Even with significant technological advances, primary material production is at threat from climate change, competition for agricultural land, pests and diseases, water shortage and conflict. And with a global population approaching 8 billion people, together with a growing middle class fuelling demand, securing resources is harder than ever.

My secret to securing your supply is to go right back to primary production and look beyond the immediate issues. Solutions tend to be found well up-stream and require an insightful meshing of people, processes and systems.
