Extended Value Chain Alignment

The extended value chain alignment is focused on collaboration with trading partners including both customer and supplier groups.  THe primary focus is in building a shared understanding and trust as foundational building blocks for supply chain innovation collaboration initiatives.  The learning models will enable the internal and external participants to explore a series of considerations such as:

  • Rules of engagement
  • Aligning metrics and goals
  • Sharing collaboration benefits
  • Managing joint project teams
  • building trust between groups
  • Aligning management team expectations
  • Building a common experience with innovation tools and techniques

The optimal approach would contain both interactive planning, confidence building steps, cross-enterprise communications and one or more demonstration pilot learning opportunities to improve cross-enterprise processes.
