Delivering Results image

The aim of all the hard work and management effort of your business is to deliver the desired end result to the customer.

The product or service will vary greatly depending on the type of business but that ethos should not. But are your suppliers up to the job? And is the supply chain working?

 

There are the obvious elements: how do I get widget A to location B by Monday? But there are also many less tangible elements to what makes a successful end result.

If you get the logistical side of your business right it will certainly be a lot easier to keep your customers happy. But you need to actively manage your supply chain in order to ensure that everything is happening at the right time. Supply chain management is about clear communication with your suppliers and trying, as far as possible, to have them understand and respect your systems. This may sound somewhat demanding but remember that you are a customer of your supplier. If you are unclear about your requirements and timescales then your supplier will be too.
