New book focuses on supply chain excellence

Supply chain consultancy Crimson & Co has launched its first book, entitled “Supply Chain Excellence – Driving sustainable improvement”.

The book is co-authored by Crimson & Co consultants with a foreword from Janet Godsell of Cranfield School of Management. Crimson says it is designed to help current and future clients generate step-change improvement in their supply chain to support business strategy.

The Supply Chain Excellence benchmarking approach is designed to be applicable to a wide range of businesses and provide focus on strategic objectives, it says.

“Designed to drive action, it enables business units to clearly see how they can get better across their whole range of supply chain processes through process improvement and/or standardisation, cost reduction or simply identifying and fixing weaknesses in the supply chain.”

The book has been edited by Nick Miller, principal consultant at Crimson & Co. He said: “Supply Chain Excellence has been developed and honed over many client engagements and we are delighted to have taken this a step further with the publication of the book.

“Clients already using Supply Chain Excellence have realised significant benefits, including raised service levels, reduced costs and standardisation of processes. We are excited about the impact Supply Chain Excellence will have on the effectiveness of our current and future clients’ supply chains.”
