Mr Tiger Qiao, DBA from Alliance Manchester Business School of the University of Manchester, will walk you through two topics regarding supply chain performance management. The first is the supply chain performance measurement. There are plenty of articles or studies address this question from the various disciplines. However, the "how" question is not answered yet. Practitioners (business managers) still do not understand how to effectively measure supply chain performance in the business world and keep the balance with what was measured. Before carrying out the field works of assessments, how many themes/dimensions the organisation should focus? Economic, ethical, ecological? This workshop will stick on economic only to unfold the challenges and confusions regarding supply chain performance measurement.
What is the correlation between supply chain performance and maturity? If the economic performance is well achieved, is this business mature than the others? Revisit the supply chain lifecycle, where is your company's supply chain?
