Clorox Successfully Implements a Program for Value Chain Segmentation
By piloting this approach with several businesses, General Managers began to understand the trade-offs such as “If you focus on speed, cost will be good, but likely not industry best.” A powerful part of the process is the trade-offs conversation to establish the predominant capability needed. We used the diagram in Figure 5 to illustrate the trade-offs with the leadership teams."

Lassoing S&OP - by @lcecere
"A common mistake by business leaders is thinking that they know what good looks like. The research that I have done recently dramatically challenges my 1990’s paradigms. (When companies hire from outside, they will attract talent from many companies. Each defining S&OP differently. As a result, when they sit around the table to discuss the process without detail, they will spin. Each thinks they know what S&OP should look like, but the discussions need to be facilitated to drive alignment.)"

Tell Me Why - by @lcecere #scm
"When we take a closer look at Wal-Mart, we see stalled improvement on performance metrics. Note that in Figure 4, that Wal-Mart is last place in driving improvement. They are losing ground in growth to both dollar store format retailers and eCommerce retailers. Wal-Mart was excluded from the list based upon a lower growth rate than the peer group and the lower rate of improvement."

Carter’s: A Story of Supply Chain Leadership - by @lcecere
"Necessity is the mother of invention. We manufacture 700 million pieces of clothing and service every channel in the U.S. along with international markets. The diversity is rising. This drove a need for complexity management and mass customization like I have not seen elsewhere. The market demand has spurred Carter’s to create strategies, systems and processes to focus on low prices and competitive market place and distribution."

VTech: A Story of a Supply Chain Leader - by @lcecere
"So, getting back to the story, at the time, there were at least three different forecasts (sales/financial/production) and none were the same, and how would they be reconciled? Legacy technology applications were completely unaligned. I asked, how do we align these? We realized that there was a need for a single trigger. Point of sale data needed to drive all processes. If you knew what the retailer was going to sell (POS) then the calculation as to what the retailer would buy was a simple mathematical calculation. The way that we got there, was to abandon the push forecast for pull demand and replenish what the retailer wants to sell. We went from push planning to pull-based demand planning over the course of a year."

Supply Chain 2030: Forge a New Path - by @lcecere
"The supporting data will be self-correcting. I believe that we will have no master data managers in the age of Supply Chain 2030 and that the systems will be self-correcting with continual learning. It will be easier. The supply chain planner’s role today is too hard."

Household Products Industry Stuck in Neutral and Going Backwards - by @lcecere
"Steve’s response was fascinating and enlightening. He said, “Ariba was in trouble. The market shift was dramatic, and if we had made a series of small cuts in staff or direction, we would have had the same fate as i2 Technologies or Manugistics. We could not afford death by a thousand cuts. Instead, we needed quick and deliberate action. Your note forced our management team to act.”

How Can We Heal the Global Supply Chain? - by @lcecere
"As I travel the world, many companies struggle to understand what I do. For many who I meet in my global travels, the industry analyst role is a new concept. It is not a globally recognized role. As a result, at conferences I am often introduced as a consultant. When this happens I quickly dismiss the categorization. I explain that a consultant is sure that they know what drives supply chain excellence while I, on the other hand, am not so sure."

Don’t Perpetuate the Hoax of the Gartner Top 25 - by @lcecere
"There is no consideration of relative performance against peer group or evaluation of year-over-year improvement. It is a limited analysis of large companies. I hang my head in embarrassment."
