Why Do You Need an Optimization of Your Supply Chain Organization and Human Resource Management?

Supply Chain Organization

In many companies, there is considerable potential for effectiveness in the organizational design of supply chain management and its integration into the company. However, an appropriate SCM organization can enable the next level in the overall optimization of the supply chain. The following criteria can be used to delineate different organizational variants for anchoring supply chain management:

  • Formalization: extent to which organizational rules and the performance of individual units are set down in writing.
  • Centralization: distribution of decision-making authority in the company (central vs decentralized decision-making)
  • Hierarchy: arrangement of an organizational unit in the company's organizational chart (executive level vs subordinate levels)

These vary depending on the level of development and performance and the respective opportunities within the company. We support you in optimally conceptualizing your supply chain's operational and organizational structure and integrating it into your company to exploit performance potential best.

How Do We Go About Optimizing Your SCM Organization and Human Resource Management?

Supply Chain Organisation

  1. Definition of the scope of the study and coordination of the procedure: First, the project objectives are coordinated, and the project-relevant departments and processes are defined. In addition, interview partners are selected for the survey on the status of the company and the project organization and communication are coordinated.

  2. Analysis and evaluation of the current situation: In the second step, the strengths and weaknesses of the current process and organizational structure of the company are determined utilizing interviews. In addition, the corporate status is benchmarked against suitable companies. Based on this, starting points for optimizing the organizational structure are identified and prioritized.

  3. Derivation of organizational options and recommendations: Suitable organizational options and recommendations are derived from the results of the second step. In addition, both the new organizational structure and the associated processes to be designed are roughly defined.

  4. Design of coordinated measures: In the final step, selected target processes are conceptualized and coordinated in detail based on the new organizational structure.


Human Resource Management

Through interviews and best-practice benchmarking, weaknesses are identified concerning employee qualifications and needs-based staffing.
