Supply Chain Management

With much of an organization’s costs tied up in its supply chain, the stakes are high when it comes to decision making, and there’s no time to waste. Are inventory turns at acceptable levels? What is the supply chain’s impact on cash flow? Should you outsource? What will the cycle time impact be?  APQC's business research can help.
