Motivation to use SCOR (part 5 of x): Determining a powerful Improvement Program

Mini-series on WHY use the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model?

Here, SCOR and our SCOR-Professional training focus on a proven pathway to determine an effective and powerful program that will lead to significant performance improvement of your supply chains, providing

  • a phased concept to develop a transformation roadmap
  • a top-down approach translating strategy into execution
  • insights to building support in your organization and discovering opportunities
  • ways to best analyze and (re-)design material flow and order and information flow (outside-in)
  • a combination of SCOR with project and change management as well as process engineering techniques
  • examples of SCOR application in real life
  • definitions, principles, pitfalls, tips and tricks

The SCOR methodology will help you and your team creating a truly meaningful program that addresses the needs of your company –
top-down and outside-in.

In our trainings we simulate the “implementation” of SCOR, i.e. we emphasize on the “how to” where the methodology side of SCOR is exercised. The “what”, i.e. the model side of SCOR forms the foundation of applying it in practice. For the latter please also read part 1 to 4 of this mini series.

The SCOR model (© ASCM/APICS) was established to help companies unlocking potential to create value for their stakeholders. It remains a powerful tool and methodology for evaluating and comparing activities and performance of supply chains across industries; be they very simple or very complex. The model has been used around the Globe by hundreds of companies, with substantial gains.

And the best way to start? (caution: advertisement ahead!) Just spend three days to get trained from a trusted advisor and SCOR Master Instructor who has been on all sides of SCM over several decades. Our SCOR-Professional Trainings are either public or in-house and can be even customized to your company’s needs. Please contact Michael Ginap and feel free to book a call. I am convinced of the power of SCOR. Happy to share my passion with you.
