A successful supply chain organization requires unique skills and expertise from its members to ensure alignment with the company's strategic objectives. To gain a competitive advantage in the market, an organization must be able to utilize the right tools, perform thorough analyses quickly, and execute. We have developed an assessment that each team member can take to gauge their level of ability across several supply chain management tools. This assessment will highlight which tools are currently being applied successfully and which tools need development on an individual basis.

The assessment uses real world examples to assess an individual's ability to:

  1. Develop a category sourcing strategy
  2. Apply inventory reduction tools
  3. Track changing costs and engage suppliers
  4. Collect and present benchmarking data
  5. Understand when to accept early pay discounts
