Better, Faster, Cheaper, Closer! How Supply Chain Management is Changing the Rules of Competition Professor Martin Christopher
Page 2 New competitive realities ● Input costs are rising but customers’ expectations are for lower prices ● New sources of low cost competition mean that downward pressure on price will continue ● Continual concentration of markets means that bigger, more powerful customers will demand more from their suppliers

Page 8 The importance of availability In mature markets on-the-shelf availability can transform profitability both for the manufacturer and the retailer. Two thirds of all shopping decisions are taken at the point-of-purchase. Availability can overcome brand loyalty where the shopper selects from a ‘portfolio’ of brands

Zara designers sketch new styles based on customer input and “hot spot” trends 6. One distribution centre dispatches product to stores twice weekly 3. Textiles are sourced from global suppliers 4.

Page 21 Measuring the ‘cost to serve’ Logistics cost accounting What costs? -Inventory -Transport -Warehousing -Order processing -etc All costs incurred from ‘order to collection’ Logistics cost accounting What measures? -Full costs -Marginal costs -Avoidable costs -etc
Page 22 Activity based costing ● Customers create activity ● Activity generates cost ● Within each activity centre understand the cost drivers ● Analyse customers by the activity they generate ● Allocate costs according to relative customer activity
Page 23 Activity based costing Delivery Invoice & Collection Order Capture Order Entry Order Approval & Confirmation ● Understand the order fulfillment process ● Identify the cost drivers ● Customer cost accounting
Page 24 Supply chain flows ● Products accumulate cost as they flow through the chain ● Products consume capacity and create costs differentially ● Customers contribute to costs differentially ● Conventional average measures are DANGEROUS

Page 26 From transactions to relationships Strategic alliance A planned ongoing relationship where both parties have needs that the other can fulfill, and both firms share values, goals and corporate strategies for mutual benefit. Out-sourcing A specifically defined relationship that is contractually oriented and dependent on the supplier meeting the shipper’s defined performance goals. Transaction A relationship built on a single event, or a series of separate single events. Strategic Alliance Outsourcing Transaction
Page 27 7 “I’s” make “We” ● Importance - must be strategically significant ● Investment - both parties must be willing to invest ● Information - must have good exchange of information ● Integration - must connect at many levels ● Interdependence - cannot exist without each other ● Institutionalisation - must have formal mechanisms and structure ● Integrity - active respect in the relationship - mutuality and trust Source : Rosbeth Moss Kanter
Page 28 Supply chain competition “Individual businesses no longer compete as stand-alone entities, but rather as supply chains. We are now entering the era of ‘network competition’ where the prizes will go to those organisations who can better structure, co-ordinate and manage the relationships with their partners in a network committed to better, faster and closer relationships with their final customers.” M G Christopher
