Identify Opportunities in Your Supply Chain Before They Become an Issue
At the epicenter of an organization is your customer. The customer is the primary focus – it’s not that the customer is always right; it’s that the customer is everything. Each organization needs to understand how their customer defines value; the customer stimulates the demand for a service/product; the customer defines the requirements; the customer evaluates the results. Optimize all areas within your supply chain to deliver customer value.
