By design, taskforces help navigate specific disruptions. As we return to a semblance of normalcy, CSCOs may be tempted to rename these specialized teams supply chain centers of excellence (CoEs).
But it’s the wrong move.
This GEP Bulletin — Supply Chain Center of Excellence: The Secret to Ensuring Long-Term Success — outlines why reconstituted taskforces won’t work as CoEs. You’ll also get a blueprint for maximizing the long-term impact of CoEs.
- Resisting the urge to repurpose taskforces as CoEs
- Defining the CoE’s function post-pandemic
- Building a CoE model that adds tangible value
The paper is a must-read for CSCOs looking to develop an agile response to supply chain disruptions.
