Supply Chain Insights

Launch of the Supply Chain Index

This research represents eighteen months of work to understand the relationship between supply chain financial ratios and the impact/ performance of the companies in public markets. To complete this study, we constructed a database of specific supply chain financial ratios (from a database of over 50 total financial metrics) and began to run correlations to understand the relationship between financial supply chain ratios and market capitalization for the past seven years. (The market capitalization data and the supply chain financial data used in the analysis was quarterly data from 2006Q1 to 2012Q4) We use this data to understand which metrics matter to financial markets for twelve Morningstar Sectors.


How S&OP Drives Agility

Sales and Operations Planning, S&OP, as a supply chain process is now over thirty years old. Most companies have implemented the process, but they are at very different states of maturity. The goal of this research was to understand the impact of S&OP maturity on organizational alignment and agility. We wanted to help supply chain leaders better understand the "state of the union" of sales and operations. 

Don't miss our live S&OP: State of the Union Webinar Thursday June 13th. This webinar will cover the results of the survey and we will also hear from a panel of experts as they share their insights on the state of S&OP.
