World Class Supply Chain

To explain this concept, we must first understand what is a supply chain? According to the definition of SCOR® [Supply Chain Operation Reference Model] of the International Supply Chain Association [Supply-Chain Council]:

Supply chain is a system composed of organizations, people, activities, information and resources, etc., which involves the entire process of transferring products or services from suppliers to customers.

This end-to-end supply chain diagram includes the entire process from the raw material supplier to the end user: planning, purchasing, manufacturing, delivery, return. Any process of each subject is like a lock on the chain. If there is a problem in one link, the entire chain will be impacted to varying degrees.

Unlock hidden value

The supply chain system of an enterprise organization is complex, and its many functional departments need to be carefully coordinated according to the company's business model and competitive positioning.

Hay Think's supply chain strategy management consulting team helps senior managers to align supply chain capabilities and operating models with their business strategies. We carry out comprehensive strategic planning for the supply chain to release the hidden value of the connection points between functions and value chain partners.

This approach combines process, organization, technology, and performance measurement to help executives understand the trade-off between cost and flexibility to deal with the profit pressures they may face. We also address these balancing issues to achieve the ideal balance between cost and service levels throughout the supply chain.

Hay Think works closely with customers to provide innovative lean supply chain strategies and solutions for profitable growth.

Hay Think works with customers in many industries to provide innovative supply chain strategies to achieve profitable growth in new and existing markets.


In today's unstable [VUCA business era] and increasingly digital global business environment, companies need fewer supply chains and more supply networks-able to move quickly and flexibly and take advantage of new innovations and the digital revolution. Most of the existing supply chain strategies are based on assumed stability, and are designed to plan, produce and deliver in a timely manner to ensure lean operations and inventory. Now, this hard-earned stability may actually hinder a company's rapid response to a changing business environment. New technologies such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud [SMAC] may disrupt supply chain operations, but they can also create opportunities to capture new market share, reduce costs and gain greater supply chain control. While some organizations are trying to withstand this digital revolution, others are analyzing the status quo and gaining a competitive advantage.
