Organizations today have come to view their supply chain capabilities as a competitive market differentiator and as one that has a critical influence on their strategic business outcomes. An effective supply chain strategy is one that is aligned with business strategy, supports the intent of the business objectives, and creates business value. A business aligned supply chain strategy enables a clear understanding of the supply chain strategy across the different functions of the organization and helps focus on the required outcome. Besides this, it also helps establish practices within the organization on how they can build business relationships with their supply chain partners, including suppliers, distributors, customers, and even their customers’ customers, and leverage it to make business benefits in the competitive environment.

In this discussion, Jac J. Braat - Former Senior Vice President, Global Supply Chain Manager, and Chief Information Officer of Philips Lighting and Vinay Bapna - Sr. Director of Product Marketing at MetricStream will highlight best practices for building a supply chain strategy aligned with business strategy, address the challenges, and discuss how organizations can:

  • Benchmark strategies and objectives in supply chain KPIs
  • Set and measure competitive performance requirements
  • Achieve strategically targeted performance levels of supply chain and business management through process maturity assessment tools
  • Link Business Balanced Scorecard and Supply Chain Balanced Scorecard
  • Effectively use Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model
