Leadership Excellence in a Supply Chain Management Environment
Marilyn Gettinger, C.P.M., Owner/President of New Directions Consulting Group

The concept of supply chain management has been discussed, written about, and counted on for cost reduction opportunities for the last fifteen to twenty years. However, there are still many senior managers and their operations staff who have never heard of SCM, don’t understand it, or consider it only for cost savings. Many organizations have implemented a link or links of the supply chain, without considering the entire “cradle-to-grave” or “cradle-to-cradle” impact and focus. Others have attempted to implement supply chain without organization-wide supply chain awareness and without dealing with an embedded silo mentality.

The “Leadership Excellence in Supply Chain Management Environment” presentation answers the following questions:

• What is supply chain management?
• Where does supply management fit into supply chain management?
• Why supply leaders/professionals are important to the successful implementation of supply chain management?
• Why supply should be part of the leadership of the supply chain transformation?

Excellence in supply chain leadership requires a road map:

1. A clear definition of supply chain management today
2. The supply chain management hierarchy of evolution
3. The cost savings, revenue generation, and profit growth opportunities available through successful supply chain leadership
4. Understanding the organization pre-supply chain
5. Silo busting
6. Organization core competencies, critical success factors, and business model
7. Types of supply chains
8. Alignment, agility, and adaptability
9. Ten success factors
10. Supply management’s role in driving excellence
