Supply Chain Strategy & Alignment--Purchasing's Next Frontier for Cost Reduction

Your suppliers typically have no well-integrated supply chain strategy.  Supplier employees are working hard, but not in alignment with each other and not collaborating well.  Because of this, they are wasting up to 43 cents on the dollar in direct and indirect labor.  Imagine what you could bring to your bottom line if you could tap into this and improve your suppliers.

In this month's meeting, we will show you where the opportunites are and what you can do about it by interactively trying to fix a manufacturing company.  We will try to save the Fresh Connection by making better decisions.  This will be a guided session where you will be asked a series of supply chain questions based on the condition of the company, and see if we can save the company.

What we will see at the end is the savings are possible if we get our suppliers to identify "North" on the compass (strategy), to row the boat in the same direction (alignment of decisions), and to get everyone to play in the sandbox together (collaboration).  At the end of our time together, you will see that what needs to be done by your suppliers can be strongly impacted by the position you hold in the supply chain and your company.

You will take away some key principles you can apply in your business and have some fun!
