Supply Chain Insights Research Reports

Healthcare Value Chain

The hospital organization is drowning in data. They are trying to drive insights from data. While the mission is clearer on what defines supply chain excellence than for other industries, getting, using and maintaining data is an obstacle for the hospital to drive more value in the healthcare value chain. This report will summarize the findings of our latest survey in the field and will suggest next steps for improvement. 

Don't miss our live Healthcare Value Chain webinar Friday May 17th. This webinar will cover the results of the survey and we will also hear from a panel of experts on their insights of how to heal the system.


The apparel industry has, on the whole, performed poorly over the past decade and struggled to improve performance on a variety of supply chain financial metrics. The rise of outsourced manufacturing, commodity price fluctuations, fast-fashion and the growth of corporate social responsibility have proved challenging for the industry, but we remain optimistic about the ability of supply chain to help right the ship. As part of the continuous Metrics that Matter series, this report will share insights on the current state of apparel supply chains.
