Supply Chain Resource Development

Supply Chain Resource Development

The aim of our program is to develop a road map for organisations to improve the quality and effectiveness of its resources who work in a supply chain or logistics capacity. We focus on building internal capacity for your organisation by conducting an initial review of the existing supply chain, logistics or warehouse structure to:

  • Develop an understanding of the function the resource is required to perform.
  • Assess the level of resource competency by working collaboratively to develop an insight into their ability.
  • Measure the results of the assessment by comparing typical tasks and processes within similar industries.
  • Develop a skills matrix that is representative of the outcomes by resource.
  • Identify opportunities or skills gaps that require additional training or development for resource.
  • Gauge their ability to develop, embrace and utilise new technologies

What is the end game for a supply chain resource?

  1. Meeting the challenges placed on you each day
  2. Have the confidence to take a calculated risk to solve a problem within your area or organisation
  3. Set performance standards and meet these standards.
  4. Focus on achieving outcomes that are real and measurable.

How can your supply chain and logistics functions be more effective?

We have recognised that in order to achieve effective organisational development for supply chain and logistics personnel, organisations must have a framework in place that consists of the following components. The main objective is to achieve alignment between your strategy and business plan:

  • Vision or mission
  • Corporate governance
  • Strategic planning
  • Business plans alliged with the strategies
  • Program development
  • Opportunity for learning through development of their resources
  • Clear accountability
  • Human Resource management
  • Management systems
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Collaboration

Effective organisations have adopted a continuous improvement approach that encourages their resources to develop their skills and capability while at the same time organisational management systems, procedures and policies are amended to reflect the pace of the organisation. While new products are being introduced into new markets opportunities, supply chain and logistics resources are also encouraged to embrace new technologies or learn how to operate new equipment as part of this continuous improvement process.
