Fundamentally, we are very experienced problem solvers who focus on results. Strategic Supply Management Associates tackles the full breadth of supply chain issues from conducting assessments and revealing hidden opportunities to diagnosing and solving plaguing supply chain performance problems.

Performance Improvement Opportunity Assessment
Clients often seek an outside perspective in identifying areas for improving the management of their supply chain. We conduct assessments of specific functional areas as well as the broader supply chain management organization to identify and quantify improvement opportunities. We analyze internal data, current business processes, procedures, systems and organization structure to identify specific improvement opportunities, quantify benefits and create an action plan to achieve those benefits.

Rapid Solution Development
For effective solution development, persistent or acute supply chain problems require a methodical and tenacious effort to identify the root causes. We employ a careful and disciplined approach to solution development. Our business advisors use their cross-industry supply chain experience, data driven analytical approach, and proven methodologies to create effective solutions. We work cross-functionally within the client's organization through the definition, analysis, quantification and planning phases of problem diagnosis and solution plan development.

Implementation Success Assurance
Achieving successful results from supply chain strategy, process and/or system changes requires experience in large scale transformations. Our supply chain business advisors have experience in leading enterprise-wide business transformation programs. They are not just rigorous project managers, they understand the pitfalls that cross-functional teams experience when making tactical and strategic changes within the supply chain. As objective advisors, we work with our client's executive leadership team to understand the implementation objectives, create clear project charters, develop detailed implementation plans and then manage the execution of the transformation plan throughout the change process. We bring our rigorous project management tools and templates, cross-functional change management know-how, and deep supply chain transformation experience to help implementation teams mitigate risk while staying on schedule to meet short and long-term business objectives.

Interim Management
Clients can find themselves with an unanticipated vacancy in their management structure due to a departing executive. We provide interim executive level management for Supply Chain departments during a short-term management vacancy.
