Supply Chain Segmentation: The window of opportunity

Do you have a ‘one size fits all’ approach to your supply chain? Are you using Pareto analysis to identify priority customers and products? Do you think your business is delivering customer value at lowest possible supply chain cost? Want to find out how to take strategic action to unlock the window of opportunities delivering customer value at lower cost?

Professor Jan Godsell has been working with industry to develop leading practice in customer responsive or demand driven supply chains for the last 15 years. Segmentation or differentiation of the supply chain has been identified as critical enabler.

The session presented the findings of a recent study conducted in conjunction with JDA that looked at the state of supply chain segmentation in over 100 European companies; identifying the strategic gaps and opportunities.
