The Supply Chain Strategy development process starts with reviewing the current situation closely with our customers.

Rethinking of assumptions with senior supply chain and business leaders in an unconstrained way that answers the question of what winning would look like if we were starting a greenfield operation. We call this “Kaleidoscope Unconstrained” and is all about designing to win. Hence the leaders consider the ideal product portfolio, the most collaborative supplier base with people operating with the right knowledge, skills and functional expertise, utilising the most effective tools and techniques and delivering a product and service to their customers via the most optimal route. This approach can identify or highlight real customer value. Value is a competitive differentiator, defined by our customers and measurable against defined criteria (the PSI2 criteria).

Together with our clients we then develop and design new strategies and solutions, and create a Kaleidoscope roadmap for effective and efficient implementation.
