Opportunity / Challenge / Risk
Our client’s organization was going through a full transformation journey. In order to achieve the necessary business results within supply chain, key challenge was to redefine a clear organisational structure and align it over the different European regions. Next, our mission was to stimulate the organisation to take ownership to implement the necessary organisation changes.
Our experience in defining supply chain organisation allowed us to fastly set up a clear organisational model. We highly contributed aligning the different stakeholders towards this new organisational model. Next via a time and motion study – detailed analysis was done on time spent over the different activities the organisation was executing. Taking into account the future direction of differentiated customer service (wholesalers/retailers), a detailed FTE impact analysis on the different departments was derived. This was then translated into new job profiles, and an implementable action plan. Finally, bluecrux set up development benchmarks and KPI which helped to support the action plan implementation.
The collaboration with our client allowed the set up of a smooth shift to the new demand & supply processes through the all organization. Bluecrux was proud to deliver a clear overview of AS IS workload per activity for each role and competence involved in the project as well as a concrete action plan to finish implementation.
