Leaders play a key role in the supply chain system. They are responsible for creating a link between upper management and front-line employees and have a dramatic impact on keeping employees engaged in their work  Although it is the people who do the work and are ultimately responsible for its success, it is the leader’s responsibility to create an environment where people can be creative, thrive, grow professionally and perform at their best.

Companies with superior supply chain performance achieve superior financial performance. The key discriminator in supply chain performance is leadership, that is, companies need to ensure they have the right leaders in the right positions.
