Supply Chain Optimisation 

Supply Chain Optimisation encompasses a range of services, tools and techniques that can be applied in any industry sector and across any supply chain from the simplest through to the most complex ecosystems.  The success of any Supply Chain Optimisation programme, however, is critically dependent on having the right blend of skills, expertise and experience, both functionally and technically, to deploy the necessary tools and techniques whilst fully leveraging the capabilities of your new or existing IT systems. 

K2 Consulting Partners, through our extensive partner network, can provide the exact blend of skills and experience that you need for successful delivery; whether as part of an IT system (e.g. ERP) implementation or optimisation programme or as an independent exercise, our supply chain specialists can help your organisation achieve profound and sustainable business benefits, deploying some or all of the following leading-practice techniques:

Strategy 

Supply Chain Strategy encompasses decisions on procurement, production, distribution and logistics to optimise efficiency, reduce costs and enhance customer satisfaction.  We will help you to develop a fit-for-purpose supply chain strategy which aligns with your business objectives and adapts to market dynamics to provide sustained competitive advantage. ​
 

Strategic 
Sourcing 

Strategic Sourcing is a systematic approach to procurement that focuses on optimising purchasing processes to achieve long-term value and efficiency.  Our consultants will support you in analysing your suppliers, (re-)negotiating contracts and managing relationships to deliver a reliable, cost-effective supply chain. ​

Supplier
Development 

Supplier Development involves actively collaborating with suppliers to enhance their capabilities, quality and performance.  We will support you in moving beyond your traditional, transactional supplier relationships, focusing instead on long-term partnerships to improve efficiency, innovation and overall competitiveness, in turn building a more resilient, mutually beneficial supply chain ecosystem. ​
