Lean Supply Chains, while still important are not robust enough to meet the needs of today’s global supply chain requirements. Jim Gitney, the CEO of Group50 Consulting, discusses new requirements and methods for Lean Supply Chain Management and introduces the Supply Chain Hierarchy of Needs ™ as a guide to implementing Lean and Agile supply chain strategies and processes. Jim shares some of the unique techniques Group50 uses in working with their clients on Lean Supply Chain management -SI&OP, Flex Fence Planning, leveraging technology and other considerations that are critical to building lean robust and scalable supply chains.
Developing and implementing strategy is hard work and requires a robust management review process to ensure that supply chain practitioners have the appropriate resources and skills necessary to successfully implement a lean supply chain strategy.
