Supply Chain Security

Supply Chain Security | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Having a secure supply chain is important for companies that move expensive or highly desirable products between their facilities and with customers. Pharmaceutical companies are especially aware that their products are a target for theft where criminals can sell the items for large profits. In 2009, Novo Nordisk reported the theft of an $11 million truckload of insulin, where it was resold to legitimate distributors, but because it was not stored in the correct manner, the product given to patients was not effective and threatened lives.

This and other thefts have a long lasting affect on the reputation of the company. With inadequate security along the supply chain a company can lose public trust which can be immeasurable. Supply chain security is as important for some industry sectors as manufacturing or R&D. Without the secure knowledge that a product will arrive at a facility or a customer a company is risking its reputation and potentially its survival.

How can Procurement drive greater post-merger synergies? | LinkedIn

How can Procurement drive greater post-merger synergies? | LinkedIn | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it

In the last weeks I have been contacted half-a-dozen times by advisory firms (incl. some very large mgmt. consultants) about how to attain enhanced procurement savings in early-on in the merger process. Given the amount of recent merger activity in the Pharma world, I guess there is a good reason for this. But what I noticed is that every conversation starts off the same way and ultimately ends with the same conclusions.

El estudio la logística sostenible, de DHL Supply Chain se puede descargar en este enlace (disponible en formato pdf, en inglés, de 24 páginas, 1,4 Mb).

La sostenibilidad aplicada a la cadena de suministro es una oportunidad, aún poco explorada, para ganar reconocimiento en el mercado y generar mayores ingresos en las empresas.

Esta es una de las principales conclusiones que arroja ‘Closing The Loop: Building the Environmental Supply Chain’, un reciente informe comisionado por DHL y el grupo LLC.

El estudio analiza cómo, desde el punto de vista sostenible, la cadena de suministro ha pasado de representar al eslabón más débil en los resultados de una compañía a convertirse en un área fundamental para generar ingresos e incrementar su reputación corporativa e imagen de marca.

#SCM #Pymes #Empresas¿Cómo vender Lean? | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Como vender Lean. Una de las preguntas que me suelen hacer cuando hablo de lean, es: 

¿Cómo se lo vendo a mi jefe? En otras palabras, ¿como le convenzo de que es necesario apostar por este tipo de forma de trabajo para que me apoye?

 

Es una situación difícil y a mi me ocurrió lo mismo al principio, no sabia como vendérselo a mi jefe, en especial porque era el típico jefe de despacho, que solo miraba números y no se interesaba en lo que era el trabajo de operaciones. Por tanto ¿que podemos hacer? Lo primero es saber como actúa y piensa tu jefe, que le gusta y que le disgusta.

#Scm #Merchandising Caminante no hay camino... | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it

… Se hace camino al andar. Decía el poema, y decimos todos aquellos que no encontramos mejores palabras para expresar que en la vida no hay caminos correctos, solo un rastro de pisadas algo viejas y resecas que no siempre llevan a buen puerto.

Hace pocos años, el director general de una importante empresa, con el que estaba tranquilamente tomando una copa, me dijo, al explicarle que había dejado Nielsen para incorporarme a AECOC: “Si dejas una corporate como Nielsen para ir a AECOC, es que no tienes ambición profesional, macho”. ¡BUM! Tardé unos segundos en recomponerme ante tan gratuito ataque a mis esperanzas e ilusiones. Si, hacía semanas que me había incorporado a la Asociación, un paso importante, pensaba, por tener entonces 26 añitos. Cuando me recuperé, traté de argumentar mis razones, eligiendo bien las palabras para que no sonara como respuesta a la defensiva.
