Supply Chain


Benefits of Supply Chain

Reacting to needs that have arisen, the organization is put in a tougher negotiating position in regard to suppliers; this creates inefficiencies since divisions and actors in the organization must wait for supplies and services to arrive. This demands some form of planning based on known targets, goals, historical needs, and external factors, and the supply chain can help alleviate the last minute, reactive nature of tactical procurement.

Being proactive
