The corporate strategy defines the set of customer needs that it seeks to satisfy through its products and services. After the corporate strategy is defined, agreed upon and communicated, the time comes for operational strategy. How shall the company deliver its strategy? And which supply chain will support the chosen corporate strategy?
MCG teams have strong experience with hands-off projects, required to marry an idealistic corporate strategy with down-to-earth and frequently flawed procurement, warehousing, production lines, logistics and distribution, i.e. all parts of an existing operations cycle.
We work with clients on:
Existing operational strategy evolution. Business is constantly changing, and sometimes no one within the company can explain why minimum raw materials supply is required at level X, while statistics support the hypothesis that it could be halved. MCG will run a holistic review of the current client’s operational strategy. Together with the client’s team we will look at all parts of supply chain, starting with R&D and procurement and ending with distribution to the end users.
Parts of operational strategy improvements. MCG is ready to dive deep into parts of supply chain and recommend action plans geared at significant improvements. Our experience includes procurement processes review that resulted in 25% purchasing cost decrease, warehousing improvements project that resulted in service level growth from 80 to 95%, and many others.
Operational strategy replacement/ changes to support new product, market expansion, post M&A processes, etc. Significant operational strategy changes are required if drastic changes in business are coming. MCG can support the clients in designing optimal operational strategy, assessing capital requirements, overseeing potential risks, recommending outsourcing partners, etc.
