The management of the supply chain needs a good balance between four different components : the management of the day to day operations, the permanent adaptation of the solutions rolled out thanks a multi projects approach, benchmarking and finally the formalization and the implementation of the supply chain strategy. This management needs more professional people involved into the supply chain.
