Trust and true partnerships are the well-known “secret” ingredient of winning supply chains, but in fact the vast majority of companies enter commercial negotiations with the traditional focus on unit costs instead of focusing on long term gains through strategic partnerships.

The new approach

When new products are developed or companies are penetrating new markets, it is crucial to have a strong and robust supply chain that is built on trust. Early R&D involvement and communication with key suppliers will also prevent expensive misunderstandings and increased ramp-up costs. In fact, it is all a matter of aligning processes and shaping roles and responsibilities with respect for and an understanding of each business area.

In collaboration with pioneers in the field, Implement Consulting Group has developed a methodology that will break the barriers to supply chain collaboration and true partnerships. This proven methodology used across various industries considers differences in process maturity between the potential partners and follows a stepwise approach to successful implementation.

Fast Return on Investment (ROI) is the common denominator of all the cases, typically between 6 to 12 months from the first pre-meeting, resulting from 

  • Increased productivity and improved quality
  • Improved end-2-end planning and transparency
  • Reduced capital tied up in stock
  • Faster product launches
  • More successful market penetrations

At this event, you will have the opportunity to learn about integration methodology, levers, impact, pitfalls and enablers from real cases on successful partnerships such as Tulip and Solina, CP Kelco and Caverion, Kvist Industries and HT BENDIX, Fiberline and Dansk Træemballage, ISS and Adecco, MAN Diesel & Turbo and HECO told from both the customer side as well as the supplier side.

The event will be a mix of interesting speeches on the tangible approach to supply chain collaboration, energising café sessions of your own choice and networking with peers.

Please note that Implement is hosting this event in both Copenhagen (13 June 2017) and in Aarhus.
