Transforming the Supply Chain
The Platform of Competitiveness


No other single element accounts for more of an organization's capital base than its supply chain - comprising around 30% of most countries' GNP. However, it is more than just being the driver of cost and investment - it is the bridge from business strategy to customer needs. That is why transforming the supply chain is critical to almost every firm, as it is the platform of competitiveness. This may explain why 88% of the Fortune 500 companies are currently engaged in a supply chain initiative. However, with the emergence of the e-age this is not just about company transformation. It is the entire reshaping of industries that we will witness as leading organizations grasp the opportunity held within their supply chains.
