Supply Chain Graphic of the Week - The Six Keys to Mastering Supply Chain Management


From Collaboration to Supply Chain Visibility, Manrodt and Holcomb offer a Framework for Assessment


By SCDigest Editorial Staff


Would you like your company to be a "Supply Chain Master?"

For the past several years, the annual Trends in Logistics and Transportation survey and report, led by Dr. Karl Manrodt of Georgia Southern and Dr. Mary Holcomb of the University of Tennessee and now in its 17th year, has offered a framework for the six variables they see as critical to supply chain and logistics success, as shown in the illustration below.

The model provides a simple but useful framework for assessing how a company stacks up in terms of supply chain capabilities and where the priority for improvement/investment should be.
