How to Create a SCM Vision
Caillaud, Consultant, France, Member
The reason I see for not finding examples of vision of logistics, is that it's not relevant. SCM is an approach of management supported by tools and techniques, which is designed to support the company's vision. Where the company wants to go, what markets are targeted, with which competitive weapons are the input to a well balanced operation strategy.
However, a well understood logistics and SC organization, performing reliable and able to react quickly, can provide interesting strategic advantages. One frequent problem is that top management doesn't always understand this, and miss the opportunity to consider this as a valuable input into the strategic planning process.
