Business case development 

The firm brings a track record of successful change management to a client’s particular business challenges.  This before/after perspective enables Supply Chain Solutions to correctly and completely define the costs of a supply change transformation initiative.

Hard costs for supply chain projects typically include the relevant system implementation, facilities startup, staff hiring and training. Softer costs include change management, communications and building stakeholder commitment to a change.

Recent business cases delivered benefits from more efficient work processes, reduced working capital and reduced procurement costs through strategic sourcing.

Organizational transformation

The integration of all supply chain functions under a single team provides a catalyst for breakthrough change within an organization. Supply Chain Solutions has worked with clients to leverage the impact of this kind of change,  transforming the company’s daily operations from independent departments to a single focused, results-oriented Operations team.

Interim leadership

Over the past 7 years, Supply Chain Solutions has provided Interim Executive support to clients in both private and public sectors for terms of 3- 9 months. Roles have included General Manager, Director Distribution and VP Operations.
