Issue and challenges

  • What are some of the significant changes in both customer markets and sourcing locations?
  • How are supply chain models (e.g. tolling, contract manufacturing, increasing use of third party providers) evolving?
  • What benefits can you reap from regional supply chain footprints (i.e. cross-border activities throughout the value chain)?
  • How can organisations manage rapid growth, particularly in emerging markets with limited business skills?
  • How can new acquisitions be integrated into the organisation to realise synergies and economies of scale?
  • Should non-core aspects of the business remain in-house, or be outsourced to leverage others’ capabilities and scale?
