When supply chain and business leaders align and collaborate around operating outcomes that drive business value, they optimize total cost more effectively.
Focusing on shared strategic goals, not cost reduction targets, enables you to:
- Reduce conflict and debate over spending cuts and budget allocations, even amid urgent budget pressure, disruption and uncertainty.
- Avoid rash trade-offs among cost, service and quality.
- Align around operating decisions that minimize waste while ensuring target performance for key outcomes.
- Break down cost optimization problems into measurable, repeatable events and conditions.
