Open Standards Benchmarking Supply Chain

Supply chains are incredibly difficult to manage because they cross functional, enterprise, geographic, and political boundaries. To set appropriate goals for your market strategy and identify best practices, you should understand how your supply chains are performing in comparison with those of industry peers as well as best-in-class organizations.

Identify the strengths and weaknesses in your supply chain processes and prioritize opportunities for improvement using any of the following assessments.

Assessments provide insight into your key organizational processes to help identify performance gaps. Upon completion of an assessment, you will receive a report containing deep, accurate, relevant, and timely benchmarks you can trust—each data point goes through APQC’s rigorous, seven-step validation process to ensure the highest level of accuracy before admission to the database. You will also receive additional peer groups in your report such as industry, geography, and entity size.

There may be a fee associated with your participation. Please see the Open Standards Benchmarking fee schedule for more information.
