@ Supply Chain Management



I want to alert you to an upcoming webcast – What’s the Bottom Line? Connecting Your Supply Chain to Financial Results (The webcast will be on Tuesday, December 11th, 2007 and I’m sure that it will be available for replay – I hope!) The presenters are DK Singh (Conagra), Dr. Stephen Timme (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Fred Haubold (SAS). And the webcast is about:

explores a proven three-step methodology for improving your financial performance through better managed supply chain business processes like forecasting, procurement, quality,service and call centers.

And the three-step methodology takes the shape:

    • Step 1: Establish benchmarks for key SCM-related financial metrics and the value of gaps calculated. The values of the gaps are an effective means to identify areas of opportunities and communicate the need for change.
    • Step 2: Link gaps in financial metrics to SCM-related business processes, activities and tasks, and key performance indicators. This provides a better understanding of the cause-and-effect relationships between SCM and financial performance.
    • Step 3: Use the information provided in steps 1 and 2 as the foundation for exploring and prioritizing SCM initiatives like improved forecasting, procurement and service.

And the presenters promise to use a case study to walk us through it.

Pencil it in! Should be fun.
