Cost-efficient, service-oriented, sustainable, and resilient: with a new approach to value chain assessment we help you pave the way towards a best-in-class value chain.
A new approach towards value chain excellence
Rising global disruptions, growing pressure towards sustainable operating models, increasingly demanding customers, and continued cost pressure require a balanced design approach for value chains. Value chain excellence can be reached by focusing on the right set of performance drivers and by embedding it in every part of the value chain.
A comprehensive maturity assessment should be the foundation of your transformation initiatives. With a new approach that also considers the topics of sustainability and resilience, we help you benchmark your value chain and identify key improvement areas.

What is value chain excellence?
We believe that today’s best-in-class value chains need to be balanced across several dimensions. Besides traditional optimization targets, new approaches need to be considered. Excellent value chains are:
Optimal end-to-end value chain cost
Clear customer focus aligned with business strategy
Including environmental and social targets
Robust and flexible value chain design
How to reach value chain excellence?
Becoming excellent in every part of the value chain is a multilayered challenge. We see five important performance drivers for excellence throughout the whole value chain:
Purpose-driven segmentations along the value chain to keep the right focus
Tailored value chains to best meet underlying business requirements
Linking different strategies to different value chain segments
End-to-end visibility on the right level of detail to enable robust decision-making
Structured ex-post data analytics and KPI measurement as basis for continuous improvement
What-if scenario analysis to increase value chain resilience
No-touch process automatization for basic and repetitive tasks (e.g., RPI)
Rule-based parameter setting and renewal throughout the supply chain
Alert generation with link to actions based on pre-defined thresholds
Fact-based decision-making instead of judgmental conclusions
Predictive and prescriptive analytics enabling data-driven decision-making
ML and AI-based approaches for advanced optimization
Consequent focus on the fulfilment of customer needs
Seamless integration of customers into end-to-end value chain
Close collaboration between supply chain and commercial to include customer expectations
