3 Study Supply Chain Management Organisation Preamble End-to-end management of the supply chain remains a developing concept for many process industry companies. Meanwhile, the development of information technology applications for supply chain management in recent years has enabled dramatic improvements by providing greater visibility of end-to-end supply chain performance and integrated planning. This in itself creates the opportunity and need to organise supply chain management differently from the past. Furthermore the trends in company strategy towards globalisation and growth in emerging markets require adapted supply chain management operating models. Continuing high numbers of Mergers & Acquisitions lead to significant organisational integration with the immediate question of how to develop the appropriate supply chain management organisation. These major trends and our daily work show us that (re-)designing and evolving the supply chain management organisation is a constant duty of top management in order to secure most effectively and efficiently supply reliability and agility in the future. However we have been unable to identify sufficient relevant studies of which companies are structuring and should evolve their supply chain management organisation. This gave us the stimulus to embark on this study which reflects the insights from the nearly 50 interviews with participants from three process industry sectors and resulted in this document. We would like to thank all the participants of the study for their insights and time provided during the intensive interviews.

However, whilst there are similarities in some of the approaches adopted to achieve improvements, there is little uniformity in how different organisations have structured their supply chain organisations to oversee and drive their supply chains. This study has been designed to gain insight into how different process industry companies across the sectors of Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals and Consumer Goods have structured their supply chain organisations. It examines how each has shaped their organisation to manage their end-to-end supply chain and respond to the challenges of globalisation and growth in emerging markets. It explores the context within which each organisation operates and highlights key performance objectives and the improve- 7

7 Study Supply Chain Management Organisation ment approaches that have been adopted. The study identifies the key drivers behind the choice of different models and the path that companies have typically followed in developing their supply chain organisations. It highlights the challenges ahead, the capabilities required to support future success and the change management required in order to develop and transition an organisation. 1.3 Methodology Supply chain leaders from a wide range of companies in the Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Consumer Goods sectors were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. 47 companies participated in the study. The results have been analysed both quantitatively and qualitatively. Collection of hard quantitative data does not easily capture the qualitative aspects of an organisation. Hence the study was conducted by interviews with participants, the vast majority face-to-face, rather than by a simple online survey. The report endeavours to convey the spirit and feel of the organisations that is hard to express using a more basic quantitative approach. Necessarily this report provides a high level summary of the findings and includes results and responses that have been filtered and anonymised. 1.4 What is supply chain management? For the purposes of this study, Supply Chain Management (SCM) is taken to comprise all the activities required to deliver value to a customer in the form of a product or service. SCM is the management across both the internal organisation and the network of external organisations (suppliers, contract manufacturers, distributors) of those necessary activities including the flow of materials, the management of supply chain information, and the planning and coordination of resources. 1.5 What is an organisation? In this study, an organisation is taken to mean a grouping of people around a particular purpose. It should have defined members and reporting structure. It should have a clear role and responsibilities with defined decision rights (i.e. what decisions can it and its members make) and governance processes. An organisation though is more than a set of organograms and documented procedures: it is also about how it interacts with its customers and stakeholders, the rest of the company (its internal interfaces) and externally. It will have a set of values and behaviours, frequently similar to those of the company but may also be unique and set by the nature of the organisation and the organisation s leaders. Supply chain management organisations tend to be quite complex because of the breadth of the supply chain role and the large number of interfaces involved. They may also need to have a wide geographical and cultural footprint, meaning that they have to embrace diversity. Differing perspectives, cultures and requirements between companies mean that there can be significant variation in role, accountabilities and other dimensions between different SCM organisations. 8

9 4.5 SCM organisation development using the reference framework The reference framework developed here goes beyond mapping a SCM organisation along the identified key dimensions. Using the reference framework, we will show why balanced design strategies should be favoured and describe how a supply chain organisation should be developed in order to achieve an optimal fit between all relevant dimensions, namely market and competitive strategy, supply chain set-up, culture and behaviour, and the SCM organisation itself Focus on balanced strategies for SCM organisations If we recall the positioning of the three predominant models in process industries, we saw that each model exhibits a balanced design with regard to the four dimensions of the reference framework (see circles A, B, C in Figure 38). In general, one can observe that effective strategies are likely to be found on the same circle and thus are balanced across each of the dimensions. The following example will illustrate why a balanced design is more effective and sustainable for the organisation of a supply chain. 1 Competitive strategy Differentiated Cost leader Market / Competitive strategy Product portfolio Standardised High variety SC Set-up 2 Figure 38: Strategic fit versus misfit in organisational design Market coverage Full Partial Local market intimacy A B Global commodities for mass market C Local independence Globally integrated Network Footprint Potential fit Decentralised and independent local units to manage local market (balanced design) Configuration Decentral Central Decentralised independent Subcultures Unitary culture Differentiation Potential misfit Decentralised and independent local units to manage global commodities (imbalanced design) 4 SCM organisation Culture / Behaviour 3 Loose Coordination Tight Authoritative Participative Leadership style 53

10 Study Supply Chain Management Organisation As shown in Figure 38, a company strategy that builds for example on local market intimacy and customised products might be supported well by a decentralised SCM organisation with strong local independence (in this case, both dimensions have a strong local focus). In contrast, the same SCM organisation model might be not sufficient to deliver global commodities in a cost-efficient manner. In the latter case, we have a potential misfit between the SCM organisation and the market and competitive strategy of a company as a globally oriented company strategy cannot be effectively supported by a locally oriented organisation. Companies should favour a balanced model for their SCM organisation How to make balanced transitions between SCM organisation models As shown in Figure 39 below, the transition between models or states can have different directions. In all cases, however, an ideal transition should be balanced, and move an organisation from one circle to another with regard to the four dimensions of the reference framework. Figure 39: Balanced transition between the three organisation models Market coverage Configuration Partial Full Central Decentral 1 Competitive strategy Differentiated Cost Leader Market / Competitive Strategy Customised products for local market Hybrid market / Competitive strategy Global commodities for mass market Decentralised independent Hub & Spoke dependency Integrated SCM network I A B C III II Product portfolio Standardised High variety SC Set-up Local independence with customisation Segmentation of assets and SCs Integrated e2e network Ethnocentric culture Geocentric culture Polycentric culture 2 Local independence Globally integrated Network footprint Subcultures Unitary culture Differentiation I II III A C C B A B Decentralised Local/Regional Independence SCM model Centralised Hub & Spoke Dependence SCM model Centralised Hub & Spoke Dependence SCM model Coordinated Network Interdependence SCM model Decentralised Local/Regional Independence SCM model Coordinated Network Interdependence SCM model 4 SCM organisation Culture / Behaviour 3 Loose Coordination Tight Authoritative Participative Leadership style 54

11 A move in from the Decentralised Local/Regional model to the Centralised Hub & Spoke model (I) is an often recognized evolution associated with growth of the company to a global coverage of markets with stronger standardisation of the product range, more complex and integrated supply chains and the need for managing the growing complexity through more standardised processes and end-to-end planning. Moving to a Centralised Hub & Spoke model from Decentralised Local/Regional model provides the necessary central leadership and governance required in the transition. We are very sceptical that a move from the Decentralised Local/Regional Independence to a Coordinated Network Interdependence model (III) can overcome persistence of local ways of working and local/ regional silo optimisation of the supply chain. A move out from the Centralised Hub & Spoke Dependence model to the Coordinated Network Interdependence model (II) has been observed in situations where growth in emerging markets requires a substantial differentiation in market supply or a strategy shift to a more agile product supply requiring a more regionalized supply network footprint and better customer responsiveness through closer collaboration between SCM and local/regional marketing & sales. Moving out to the Coordinated Network Interdependence model from a mature Centralised Hub & Spoke Dependence model provides the benefits of a harmonised SCM management approach as well as standardised processes, roles and tools. Consistent governance by a central SCM function should maintain harmonisation and standardisation and provide sustainability of these benefits. As the framework describes, each of the supply chain organisation models or states has very different characteristics and requirements in terms of strategy, portfolio, culture and behaviours. In order to transition between organisation models, each of these characteristics needs also to change and be consistent with the desired future state model. In any case, one should be aware that an ideal transition strategy moves between balanced designs Avoiding imbalanced SCM organisation models In addition, the study revealed that companies rely on SCM organisations that can be classified as mixture, or hybrids, of the three introduced organisation models. In this paragraph we provide two examples of such an imbalanced set-up and highlight the associated risks and downsides. Example 1 Imbalanced transition away from Decentralised Local / Regional Independence model The blue dotted line in Figure 40 represents where the company is coming from with regard to company strategy and SCM organisation. All elements (quadrants) of the historical set-up have been balanced in the same Decentralised Local/Regional Independence model. The solid line below describes the situation where the market strategy now has global coverage with a hybrid strategy while the supply chain footprint and set-up still is very much local and not integrated. Supply chain management recognizes the need for more central governance and processes while the predominant culture of the organisation is historically polycentric. As observed in some cases in our study the centralisation move of supply chain 55

12 Study Supply Chain Management Organisation management encounters severe difficulties in process and role harmonisation but more importantly in realizing an effective end-to-end supply planning and inventory optimisation while meeting market needs and service levels to secure supply reliability. The imminent risk is that product supply will still be managed locally behind the scenes whilst the central supply chain management function gets decoupled from operational planning and execution.
