Augustin Gueldry's curator insight, January 9, 2013 3:33 AM

PwC Consulting points out six factors that will highly improve the competitiveness of leaders in the field of supply chain.

 

In fact supply chain management is essential to lead a company to success. Profitability passes through a well-oiled and modern supply chain in a global market full of pitfall. The best companies being the pioneers are investing a lot of money to fit the best their customers for a maximum satisfaction.

 

 When one hears about satisfaction, it means that effort on-time delivery has been met. Each customer has a special need and a customized solution has to be found. The future competitive advantage depends on a “best-in-class delivery” through an efficient supply chain management and logistics.

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | Expert Supply Chain | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.

Jewelry donations range from broken gold necklaces and jewelry missing gemstones to very rare and hard to come by fine or estate jewelry. You will receive the absolute maximum tax deduction for your generous jewelry donation. http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org/

Strategic Sourcing: Liderar un impacto duradero en Compras: hoy, mañana y en los años venideros (Parte I)

Cuando el Análisis del Gasto se integra periódicamente y de manera integral, los resultados se mantienen tanto en el corto como en el largo plazo. Aquí está la progresión de los beneficios.

ROI instantáneo: los beneficios a fecha de hoy

Más gasto controlado y gestionado: No todos los empleados compran bajo contrato, y este tema es mucho más profundo que una no conformidad contractual. Los empleado harán lo que sea para ser más productivos, si un proveedor no satisface sus necesidades suprimirán su contratación para lograr un trabajo correcto.

El Spend Analysis ofrece la visión de qué proveedores no están cumpliendo con las necesidades de los compradores y permite tomar acciones correctivas en tiempo real. Cuanto más tarde se corrija un gasto incorrecto, más oportunidades estamos perdiendo.

Mejores Proveedores y Mayor Cumplimiento de los Contratos: ¿Qué ocurre cuando un proveedor factura demasiado o su factura es diferente cada mes? Con cientos de miles de líneas de gasto y miles de contratos, es técnicamente imposible para los departamentos de compras lograr una visibilidad del 100% de los mismos de manera manual. El Spend Analysis resuelve inmediatamente este problema mediante la generación de alertas sobre la desviación de los precios contractuales en tiempo real.

Do You Need To Change Your Organisational Structure To Improve Your Customer Experience? | CustomerThink

Do You Need To Change Your Organisational Structure To Improve Your Customer Experience? | CustomerThink | Expert Supply Chain | Scoop.it

I’ve been thinking about whether an organisation’s structure impacts it’s ability to deliver great customer experiences recently. I’ve also been exploring this in my podcast interview series, where I interview leading authors, entrepreneurs and business leaders about what it takes to deliver great service and customer experiences.

What I’m finding is that to deliver great customer experience and exceptional customer service, organisations need to have the right culture, values, behaviours, mission and purpose etc etc in place.

That’s fair enough, you might say, and may not be much of a surprise.

But, what about an organisation’s structure? And, is the traditional, hierarchical and command and control structure still ‘fit for purpose’?

Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures, doesn’t necessarily think so.

I had a chance to chat to him about this in my most recent podcast interview, where we chatted about that and his new book: Looptail, which tells the story of G Adventures, their journey, success and how they have radically changed their organisational structure.
