Balancing the 4 Cs of Supply Chain

Training focuses on the following drivers of supply chain performance.

Customer Service

This is the lead function, the ears and eyes of business, which provides visibility in the form of forecast, manages orders, and brings valuable insight to market trends, challenges and opportunities.

Cash Flow

Life blood of business – a combined effect of performance and policy. It is generated by the flow of goods and services to the customer, and is optimized by managing operating and capital expenses, avoiding pinch points and maximizing value.

Cost

Since price is driven by the competitive market, hence no more a matter of choice, the only lever left to earn decent return is to control cost. Understanding the various aspects of cost and how they impact short and long term profitability is the key to sustainable growth.

Capacity

Capacity represents the ability to respond to customer needs, and represents a combination of funds, equipment, facilities, people, licenses, patents, goodwill and all else that enables an organization to transform its vision and mission into reality, gaining competitive advantage. Therefore, to understand the nature of capacity, along with its acquisition and utilization, is the key to sustainable growth.
