Programme Managing The Supply Chain Portfolio
Effective and efficient management of the Supply Chain Portfolio is widely regarded as the key to optimal organisational performance. How to achieve this has remained a complex challenge to executives. This paper proposes programme managing the project driven and non-project driven components of the Supply Chain Portfolio as a sustainable solution to the problem. Stock and Lambert describe Supply Chain management as a highly interactive, complex systems approach that requires simultaneous consideration of many trade-offs. Supply Chain management integrates key business processes from suppliers to end users and provides products, services and information that add value for customers and other stakeholders.
