Supply Chain Governance

The globalization of supply chains has opened up exciting opportunities to build new strategic partnerships, and source goods and services from anywhere across the world. Yet, many organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to manage their complex networks of suppliers and sub-suppliers scattered across different geographies. Each business unit has its own approach to managing their respective suppliers. Therefore, at the enterprise level, supply chain governance often looks like a maze of multiple fragmented, uncoordinated, and manual processes. Tracking supplier performance and risk ends up being a costly and time-consuming exercise.As a result, many organizations are looking for ways to streamline supply chain governance processes, and strengthen top-level transparency into supply chain risks, compliance, and performance.
