Audits and recommendations

Diagnosis and audits are short-term assignments, recurring or non-recurring, following a standard methodology (this is how benchmark is prepared). Their main purpose is to us an new fresh point of view in order to generate new perspectives or confirm and complete existing plans.

It's a unique mindset, but good chain does not orient them as sales pitch for future services, and the level of detail demonstrates a true interest in finding the most impactful and realistic solutions.


Benchmark and intrinsic assessment, transformation potential and budget. Highlight pitfalls and blind spots of current plans.

Organisational efficiency

Departments and org-chart review, costs analysis and succession plans. Benchmark on core and support functions. Map complexity created by (external) growth.

Operational excellence

IT studio

What's your IT budget? The question could bounce back as how much are we ready to waste.... most of the time. 

  • Off-the-shelf software companies have a "fit-in or pay" approach to their customers
  • Agile coding teams will make you pay for every sprint to let you discover the "user needs". 

It turns out, supply chain best practices are well documented and known to supply chain professionals. The choice is reduced to finding the right fit between speed, governance and budget, as well as an honest guide or implementation partner. And that is a lot more subtle and efficient than blowing a few millions on a PLM or in platform subscriptions...

Software and data strategy

Choose the best fit for your supply chain. Avoid marketing buzz and costly architecture mistakes. Cruise through IT RFQ like a champ.

Reporting as a Service

Get your data cleaned, best practice reports and scorecards prepared and distributed securely to your teams and suppliers, without the related workload.
