Project management in Supply Chain, 5 step project management process


Why do you need project management in Supply Chain?

If you want to successfully manage change within a business, then project management principles are vital. It is commonplace to find both improvement and strategic initiatives. This is particularly true when it comes to the supply chain function. Take a look at the activities that form a part of many organizations’ improvement programs; they might include:

  • The option to outsource key abilities such as manufacture or assembly
  • Moving over to a global supply chain rather than a local one
  • Rationalization of suppliers
  • Arranging corporate deals
  • Programmes of cost reduction
  • Programmes of lead time reductions
  • Rationalization of inventory
  • Deployment of technology

A complex co-ordination of resources is required for these activities in order to deliver an objective that is defined in a particular timescale. The appropriate skills and techniques, together with experience of the supply chain, are required for a successful outcome.

  • Perform supply chain excellence
