Supply Chain Index: Evaluating the Industrial Value Network

An evaluation of 5 industries in the industrial value chain (automotive, automotive suppliers, consumer electronics, semiconductor and contract manufacturers), using the Supply Chain Index methodology across two time periods (2006-2013 and 2009-2013.)

Highlight: These companies are not equal in their understanding of supply chain excellence. Each of the industries has struggled with low margins, shortening product life cycles, and tightening of supply.

Supply Chain Talent: A Broken Link in the Supply Chain

A report on supply chain talent issues related to hiring, recruiting and training talent as well as the solutions that work best. Based on an online survey (June-August 2014).

Highlight:  Only 14% of companies rate themselves as doing better than peers on managing supply chain talent, while 43% rate themselves as doing worse. The primary drivers for this gap are issues around management support, recruitment and staff development.
