The Supply Chain Executive's Strategic Agenda 2008: Managing Global Supply Chain Transformation

Fifty-six percent of companies that participated in Aberdeen's 2008 Supply Chain Executive's Strategic Agenda study regard supply chain mangement as a market strategy differentiator, a customer service differentiator or as a profit center, as opposed to strictly a cost of doing business. While companies across industries and regions continue to be confronted with inexorable escalations in supply chain costs, market realities such as globalization of supply, increasing competitive pressures, and dwindling product life cycles demand that they transform their supply chains to balance cost reduction with strategic business alignment while performing at stellar levels.

Aberdeen's survey of over 800 supply chain executives worldwide found just how tough the business pressures have become in their supply chains. This report aims to highlight the critical role that supply chain executives can play in aligning business strategy with supply chain goals. In addition, the report aims to provide a process roadmap for supply chain executives faced with transforming their supply chains while delivering strategic value at lower cost.
