Why does Supply Chain Management have such a Low Profile?

Supply chain management and logistics are major part of most organisations activities and yet they have a low profile in many organisations. Why? Thanks.

SCM Has no Low Reputation Anymore

It had that 20 years back, but not anymore nowadays.

Why Has SCM Such a Low Profile?

I believe that SCM has a low profile because the practitioners are highly capable problem solvers and are able to 'make do' with what they have. I have always said that the SCM team in most organizations has been treated as the 'red-headed step child' of the organization because of this. This causes a problem for the SCM organization because they are often times overlooked when allotting capital funding for projects because of their problem solving capabilities.

I think SCM is now becoming the integral part of most organizations. Most organizations are now including procurement officers who do productive procurement for the company.
