Supply Chain Management

Your supply chain can be a powerful tool for driving growth and creating competitive advantage, enabling you to deliver the products your customers want faster and more cheaply than your competitors. Optimization requires a clear sense of what really matters to customers and a clear view of the cost/benefit trade-offs. Success means answering key questions such as these:

  • Is our supply chain aligned with our business strategy?

  • How should we manage the complexity of global distribution and logistics?

  • How can we better meet demand with lower inventory levels?

  • How can we optimize the end-to-end supply chain to improve performance?

Besides supply chain strategy and redesign, BCG supports all aspects of implementation, including pilot programs and ramp-up, evaluation of technology platforms, and third-party orchestration. We also look for “quick hits” that can deliver fast results in high-impact areas. Read More
