The Value of Procurement
Maintaining the Process
Many companies start out to improve their supply chains. Then they find that it is more difficult than they expected, or other projects take precedence, and the improvements slow or stop. This is why it’s important for us to repeat over and over that companies with an efficient supply chain system that is coordinated throughout the organization have better financial successes than those with inefficient or standalone systems.
It takes a coordinated, system-wide effort to build, maintain, and sustain an efficient supply chain. This might mean that you have to become a champion to see it through, because in the end someone does have to develop and apply the practices needed. Could you be that person?
