Step 1 - Let's plan scenarios
I provide strategies for improving your supply chain network issues with an 'eye' on global transportation and logistics as well as implication for the wider supply chain in context. Alternatives, long and mid-term scenarios, trade-offs and different options in view of likely trends in the way your organization is growing from part of my assessment. All of this is extremely practical and focused on your global supply chain issues. In doing this, I use a methodology that is both flexible and well-tested.
Step 2 - Knowledge transfer
I analyze and apply specific tools (like SIx Sigma) to provide a reliable solution focused on:
Previous practical experiences that usually have unique elements but also common themes applicable to your specific problem
Potential options while taking into account different variables.
Step 3 - Application of 'best-fit' solution
Within supply chain some of the key pressing issues are alignment and coordination - I ensure key network variables are kept in balance at all times while ensuring the matching of supply and demand. I intervene but I don't disrupt.
