A global manufacturer of life sciences and hospital solutions was looking to outsource it’s entire supply chain in order to increase flexibility, generate synergies and reduce costs.
We implemented a structured Idea Realization process where we used LEAN principles and crowdsourcing to generate savings and global process alignment. Lean tools and global workflow management helped to share best practices in the client’s global supply chain and build global new processes with a focus on a continuous improvement value flow.
