how we do supply chain strategies
If you want to try the same methods, you will need supply chain mastery, or at least someone who has supply chain mastery with you. Otherwise, your attempts to emulate our methods are likely to counterproductive. That is the nature of these methods.
At the start of every project, we clear our mind of all pre-conceived notions, and start with a clean slate. This is necessary to make sure that we do not cross-contaminate cases. This also helps us keep our personal biases aside.
Get inside knowledge and accurate data
Next we interview key personnel (senior executives, and operational staff) to generate hypotheses for problems definition and solution design.
The next step is the most critical step.

We look for big opportunities to move the supply chain to next level. Look at the figure below for a clue:
