Delivery Options:

  • Public Program: 2 days. Check Events for upcoming dates and details.
  • In-house Program: From 1 to 2 days. Option to customise the program to specifically meet your organisation’s needs. The program can be held at the site of your choosing and can range from one-day briefings, to the 2 day program and/or focus on individual areas of interest. We can bring additional relevance to the material by incorporating exercises that use your firm’s data.

Overview: Supply chain improvement and change initiatives fail due to:

  • Limited strategic alignment between the Supply Chain Strategy to Corporate Strategy
  • No Supply Chain Strategy
  • Limited strategic alignment between supply chain performance objectives and corporate strategic objectives
  • Limited understanding of strategic supply chain management and how to use as your greatest competitive weapon
  • Limited understanding of supply chain models, capabilities and capacity required to achieve substantial strategic performance outcomes
  • Limited understanding of supply chain performance measurement, metric selection, benchmarking, target setting, scorecard development and gap analysis
  • Limited understanding of the behavioural factors that prevent stakeholder relationships from working successfully within the firm and between firms
  • Limited technology capabilities to capture data and measure, monitor, report and manage performance in the most efficient way possible
  • Limited prioritisation of improvement and change initiatives causing time, money, effort and people to be focused on initiatives or changes that have the least impact on strategic objectives and leave substantial issues and risk left unmanaged.
  • Limited approach to sustainable change management resulting in issues and risks escalating, catastrophic failures and loss of key customers and key suppliers
  • Limited approach to benefits realisation management to ensure all initiatives and changes achieved the results intended and impacted strategic objectives as intended

Who Should Attend: The Supply Chain Transformation Blueprint Program is designed specifically for professionals who:

  • are striving to achieve massive supply chain transformation;
  • need a comprehensive, tailored and prioritised approach;
  • would like to walk away with their first draft transformation blueprint to showcase to senior management the next day, to support their transformation business case.

Agenda: You will learn an 8-step structured approach to massive supply chain transformation to achieve your corporate strategy in the most efficient and effective way possible. During each step you are shown how to complete your blueprint document, which is a key output to the program.

Supply Chain Transformation 8 steps v1

Over 2 days we will work through the 8 steps to massive supply chain transformation:

Step 1: Strategic Supply Chain Performance Objectives

Strategically aligning Supply Chain Strategy to Corporate Strategy to define strategic objectives

We explore strategic and operational risks and issues caused by: (a) not having a Supply Chain Strategy; (b) not aligning it to the Corporate Strategy; (c) not considering the strategic and operational requirements of key supply chains within the Corporate Strategy. We’ll then use our Strategic Alignment Mapping Technique to align the strategies, strategic objectives and requirements. This technique is designed to ensure a firm performs as required within the strategic supply chains it operates.

Step 2: Strategic Supply Chain Management Requirements

Identifying your greatest competitive weapons to deliver your strategic objectives

We examine ways in which a firm can capitalise on opportunities within strategic supply chains and how to turn these opportunities into the firm’s greatest competitive weapon. We’ll achieve this by using our Substantial Benefits Technique to identify and define the key drivers of beneficial supply chain relationships; followed by exploring ways to achieve competitive differentiation through supply chain segmentation.

Step 3: Supply Chain Capability Maturity & Measurement

Assessing maturity and identifying the gaps impacting strategic objectives

We’ll use our Supply Chain Capability Maturity Assessment Tool to explore how to assess and measure maturity across the five core supply chain capabilities: Supply Chain Performance, Strategy, Network, Processes and Resources. Then we’ll identify and discuss how these capabilities and maturity gaps impact strategic objectives.

Step 4: Stakeholder Relationship Maturity & Management

Assessing the health and impact of vital cross-functional, intra-firm and inter-firm relationships

We identify the relationships that are critical to ensuring the achievement of a firm’s strategic objectives and assess the health of these relationships using our Stakeholder Relationship Maturity Assessment Tool. We’ll explore the behavioural factors that are causing over 50% of performance management systems to fail – that are considered to be a firm’s highest priority challenge to address. We’ll look at ways to establish and support successful cross-functional, intra-firm and inter-firm relationships through integrated process management.

Step 5: Performance Management Technology

Assessing the status of innovative technology requirements to manage performance

We examine the risks and issues of not using efficient and effective technology in supply chain performance management systems; the lack of use of available technology; and how this impacts strategic objectives. We’ll explore innovative technology options to rollout strategic objectives firm-wide, in addition to options to improve data capture, process integration, performance measurement and reporting.

Step 6: Supply Chain Transformation Goals

Defining significant do-or-die goals for massive transformation to achieve strategic objectives

We reflect upon the significant discoveries uncovered during Steps 1 to 5, to identify the risks and issues with the greatest potential to prevent strategic objectives from being achieved. We define the massive changes required to achieve your strategic objectives and the substantial benefits that exist within your strategic supply chains. We identify and list your massive supply chain transformation goals.

Step 7: Supply Chain Transformation Prioritisation

Prioritising transformation goals by greatest impact and least risk to strategic objectives

We undertake a high level impact and effort assessment of each massive supply chain transformation goal. Our assessment will allow you to discover which goals: will have the greatest impact on achieving strategic objectives and supply chain benefits; will be the quickest to achieve these goals; will require the least effort; and represent the least overall risk. Additional criteria will be reviewed to finalise the prioritisation of your transformation goals.

Step 8: Change & Benefits Realisation Management

Defining requirements and approach to manage sustainable change and benefits realisation

We examine why firms have been unsuccessful in managing change effectively and explore the key success factors for sustainable change, and the steps to take to achieve this. We explore an approach for successful benefits realisation management, to ensure strategic objectives and supply chain benefits are tracked and realised, during required timeframes, by responsible and accountable parties.
