Supply Chain planning is about optimising resources and prioritising objectives. Within the consulting landscape for Supply Chain planning, ALM asserts, clients are seeking consultants to support tactical improvements and digital and business transformations.

ALM Vanguard: Supply Chain Planning Consulting

Naima Hoque Essing, author of the Vanguard report, states, “Applying concepts from its Integrated Business Planning, Connected Supply Chain, and Smart Manufacturing frameworks, PwC helps clients establish integrated supply chain planning processes that harmonize horizontally across planning functions as well as vertically from strategy planning to execution. Its industry supply chain specialists are effective in coordinating firms’ strategy, operation and technology expertise, broad ecosystem partners, and other resources to tailor focused solutions across the end-to-end supply chain.”

PwC was named best in class for operating systems. Essing notes, “PwC excels in its ability to combine S&OP and executive planning functions into an integrated business process that embeds competitive strategy into every day planning and execution activities across marketing, sales, finance and supply chain operations. Its sweet spot is helping clients use digitalization as a means to redesign and transition to new planning models that connect to commercial strategies without adding undo system complexity by focusing client teams on the relatively few decisions that truly drive enterprise profitability.”

Essing provides this summary of PwC’s approach: “PwC goes to market by industry practice with projects led by industry-focused supply chain experts. Functional leaders are supported by a Planning Center of Excellence, providing thought leadership on methods, tools and intellectual property and offshore delivery teams for advanced analytics and benchmarking capabilities.”

Randy Browning, Global Advisory Markets Leader, PwC, stated, “We are delighted to be noted for our planning functions, our approach to strategy planning and execution,  and our technology expertise. Our approach when supporting a client is to work with them to develop a strategy that is tailored to the market and aligns with their business objectives in the short and the long terms. This often means evaluating innovative digital systems in order to implement data-driven solutions that will set our clients up for short-term improvements and long-term success.”
