Bocuse knew by heart that you can’t manage what you can’t see. Today, many companies still do not know much about their inputs and focus too much on managing their internal processes, instead of their supply chains. The most recent Deloitte CPO Survey (2020), shows that only 50% of procurement leaders had high or very high visibility into their tier 1 suppliers, while 90% of organisations rated their visibility into their extended supply networks (beyond tier 1) as moderate to very low (!). This is potentially very concerning for both Procurement and SCM leaders, who are often held accountable for supply risk. From research, we know that most supply disruptions are attributable to issues beyond tier 1 suppliers. Still, most supply risk mitigation strategies, if there are any, are focussed on direct suppliers and not based upon a deep understanding of what’s happening further down the supply chain.
