Strategy and Goal Alignment

Strategy and Goal Alignment

 

The first step in optimizing the supply process is building an internal consensus around the opportunities that add value to the organization.  The focus is: “Where, when, and how can personnel contribute to short and long term goals and strategies of the organization?” 

 

Vertical and horizontal alignment of strategy and goals is required for supply (and the supply chain) to sully contribute to the organization.  Vertically, functional and business unit’s strategies must align with overall corporate strategy.  Horizontal alignment (marketing, procurement, finance, production, logistics, customer service) must also occur for each area to achieve corporate goals.
