Efforts to manage supply chains must respect every company’s need to preserve their competitive advantage.
Every manufacturer, whether customer or supplier, big or small, should benefit from participating.
Done right, there is a network effect in mapping supply chains that generates exponential additional value with each new participant.
Supply chains are complex, but the tools and models used to manage them need to be simple.
The greatest risks to most manufacturers originate in their underlying supply chains not their own operations.
Supply chain management should be more about picking winners than losers – choose opportunities over risks.
