Booz & Co.: The Capable Supply Chain Linked with Strategy for Superior Performance

Successful businesses across a diverse range of industries and sectors make sure to harness the profit power of their strong supply chains.

Booz & Company (4/1/2011)
For businesses across many industries, supply chain and logistics can be make-or-break considerations. Some of the world's most successful companies recognize a strong supply chain as a significant income generator, zero in on their most profitable products and services, and make sure they have the capabilities they need for success while avoiding excess investment.

A Booz & Co. report examines how businesses can harness their supply chains for maximum financial results. By considering six company archetypes that Booz assigns (Innovator, Premium Player, Customizer, Differentiated Green, Aggregator, Value Player), a view of supply chains for a variety of business types emerges.

By comparing the strategies of companies as diverse as Apple (designated as an Innovator) and Ikea (a Value Player), Booz develops a way for companies to test their supply chains against like businesses.
