Competitive Cost Leadership Driven By Supply Chain Efficiency
By now, almost everyone, even the luddites would know that better supply chain management can make a company more efficient and cost competitive.
Then, what is the purpose of this supply chain course? Why do we still continue to run it year after year?
The reason is simple – supply chain techniques keep advancing. With the technology and methods that are available today, you can achieve a much higher level of optimisation and integration than you could achieve even five years ago.
So the first thing we would discuss in this course is about how every few years cutting edge methods in supply chains changed in the past four decades. We will also discuss how to diagnose where your company is located on the continuum of the supply chain evolution.
Next issue to consider is the risk-reward trade-off in cost reduction projects. How to minimise the risk and maximise the potential rewards using the best knowledge of supply chain cost reduction available today?
The following figure may already get you started on the right path.

OUTPERFORM OUTSOURCE OUTPROFIT
The trend of outsourcing continues to grow unabated with the whole gamut of services, from simple to mission-critical tasks. There is not a single company on earth that does not outsource anything. It is not just about cost arbitrage, it is also a finer expression of division of labour at the organisational level. Like all leverage, outsourcing is a double-edged sword too. On one hand, it allows you to do more, faster. On the other hand, if it goes bad, it can easily kill your business. If you do not believe that is possible – you can google the Fox Meyer saga from the 90s and see for yourself.

GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN – AN ACTION MANIFESTO
It is generally accepted that environmental consciousness is now changing to environmental proactiveness as organizations are discovering that it makes good commercial sense.
Boards are asking the management to review their policies related to environmental norms, not only to bolster their corporate social responsibility aims, but also because consumers are asking for greener supply chains
It is also widely agreed that consumers will increasingly prefer to buy more and even pay more for products or services provided in an environmentally sound manner.
