Upcoming Research Projects

Analyzing Benchmarks in Supply Chain
This project includes an in-depth dive in benchmarks in supply chain management. It includes key benchmarks in various process groups, as well as tune-up diagnostics and guidance for improving performance on selected KPIs.

Building and Maintaing Sustainable Supply Chains
APQC has been hearing about the need more insights into “sustainability” across the supply chain. This is a broad umbrella that includes environmental factors, social issues, and corporate governance (ESG) commitments and goals. There is increasing conversation about seeking lower carbon emissions, ethical sourcing, and improved human rights throughout the end-to-end supply chain. We are seeking to synthesize the latest insights from secondary research as well as conduct a survey to gather fresh data on the current state of corporate practices.
