Aligned Action

Supply chain strategy


Successful skydiving teams execute precise movements, split-second timing and complex coordination — all at a dizzying height and speed. A company’s supply chain is similarly complex, requiring careful coordination of its many moving parts in alignment with the company’s business model and competitive positioning.

Deloitte’s Supply Chain Strategy team helps senior executives align supply chain capabilities and operating models with their business strategies. We take an integrated view of the supply chain, unlocking hidden value in the connection points between functions and value chain partners. This approach incorporates process, organization, technology and performance measurement to help executives understand the trade-offs between cost and flexibility in response to margin pressures they may be facing. We also explore ways to address those trade-offs to achieve the desired balance between cost and service levels across the supply chain.
