Towards achieving and maintaining excellence in supply chain planning.

In today’s business environment, many organizations understand the value that lean management philosophies can bring to help them remain competitive. However, while most organizations have seen a clear potential for lean in manufacturing and logistics, only 16% have fully embedded lean principles in supply chain planning.
