Supply Chain Management

think: act CONTENT

2010

Organizing Supply chains is the high art of management. Not to mention a strategic competitive advantage. This is the somewhat unexpected result of an exclusive study by Roland Berger, the WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, ETH Zurich and Stanford University in California: Supply Chain Management, the former cost killer is becoming a profit driver.

Best-practice companies that rigorously segment their supply chains and align them with product features are outperforming their rivals. The return on assets (ROA) at these companies is twice that of firms that pay no attention to the supply chain fit – a method devised by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants to align supply chains perfectly with a company's business model.
