Supply chain and procurement

What are the current challenges for the supply chain and procurement function?

The supply chain and procurement function sit at the heart of any product led business. Its performance can ultimately make or break the company’s success.

Organisations facing rapid growth quickly realise the need for a supply chain that is fit for purpose to help them scale up effectively. However, it is still a function that many organisations don’t put enough emphasis on and therefore don’t recognise the benefits that it can fully deliver.

Supply chain and procurement interact with all people, process and systems aspects of the business, working together with sales and marketing to determine customer demand and the factors that will influence it, as well as working with finance to control raw material and finished inventory costs.

Supply chains are constantly transforming to align more closely with customer’s ever-changing requirements. If you don’t evolve your supply chain to meet your customer needs from a quality and service perspective, then your customer will go elsewhere.

What type of supply chain and procurement talent do you need?

Closer alignment of the supply chain and procurement function to company strategy has led to a very competitive market for top talent at a leadership level.

Individuals who can think on a technical level from a process and data perspective, but who can also interact on an interpersonal level to build relationships across an organisation are in high demand.
