Business Challenge

Our client is a Fortune 200 Consumer Goods company and a global manufacturer and retailer of apparel, footwear & accessories. Our client was seeking to improve delivery of a global supply chain program. This program was already in progress to drive efficiency, speed and responsiveness throughout the supply chain by leveraging flexibility in final destination commitments.

The key issues that faced our client were:

  • Complex program organization, including multiple PMOs, part-time resources, and lack of clear business and technical ownership
  • Large and complex scope with involvement from stakeholders across the Global Supply Chain
  • Overlaps and dependencies with other large supply chain programs
  • Entry and Exit requirements for program phases not clearly defined
  • Lack of an integrated program workplan

Engagement Quick Facts

  • Analysis of internal program audit and 19 interviews with program team members and stakeholders over a one month period
  • Developed nearly 200 Inferences, Themes, and Observations to support strategic and tactical recommendations
  • Five strategic recommendations were used to redirect the next phase of the project

Business Benefits

We conducted a review of an internal program audit, 19 interviews of program team members and stakeholders, and a thorough review of program artifacts, to determine the root causes of program success and failure. We developed five strategic and 21 tactical recommendations to improve program delivery and assisted our client by providing a prioritized list of strategic and tactical recommendations to enable our client to improve program delivery and increase benefits realization.
