Supply Chain

Increasing global capabilities by optimising complex networks

Discovering new ways to add value to your supply chain. Previously, an organization's supply chain specialists took centre stage only when something went horribly wrong. However, technology has pushed the supply chain to the forefront, allowing organisations to track the location of goods around the world in real time, forecast how a viral social post will affect demand, and predict the impact of a natural disaster on the availability and price of a component. When an organization's supply chain is optimised, it can truly become a competitive advantage.

However, an optimised supply chain necessitates talent with a diverse skill set that is difficult to identify—and even more difficult to find. Supply chain leaders must be strategic thinkers, planners, and collaborators with a diverse set of skills, including vision, results orientation, and a blend of soft skills. They must also have cross-functional experience in product innovation, business acumen, current automation, and system technologies, among other things. That's where we come in.

Our Supply Chain Center of Excellence operates as a boutique practise within the larger RightSource Global network, bringing deep functional expertise and capability to our industry and regional coverage matrix. We were, in fact, the first major search firm to establish a supply chain and operations practise.

Our skilled organisational consultants can assist your supply chain function in attracting, developing, and retaining top-tier executives and their direct reports. We will also assist you in developing a strong organisational culture as well as top-to-bottom supply chain talent frameworks that will drive your bottom-line success.
