The beginning of a brand new year is always an exciting time. In our efforts to look ahead and plan for a successful 2016, let’s not forget to take a quick glance back at 2015 to take away lessons from what went well.
One such place to takeaway pointers from is this list of companies that made it into at the top supply chains of 2015. How did they do it? How can you replicate their successes in your own business?
This is Gartner’s 11th annual global supply chain top 25 list, covering the manufacturing, retail, and distribution sectors, and companies listed include household names like: Amazon (#1), McDonald’s (#2), Unilever (#3), H&M (#7), Samsung Electronics (#8), and Nike (#10). If you’re wondering why the much lauded Apple isn’t sitting in first place, it’s because they’ve done such a great job holding on to the supply chain management crown over the past 10 years that they’ve been promoted to a special category for masters of supply chain management.
So how do these companies do it? Well, Gartner posted up the key performance indicators used to evaluate and determine their top 25, and it’s time to learn from the best.
As another year begins, it’s a great time for resolutions and plans to take your business to new heights. And there’s no better place to start than implementing ideas used by the top supply chains of the world!
