Understanding SCOR-based Consulting

Definition

    • Over 800 Company Members
    • Cross-industry representation

  • Membership Composition:
    • 40% - Practitioners
    • 25% - Enabling Technology Providers
    • 20% - Consultants
    • 15% - Universities, Associations, Government Organizations

Value

Information technology is heading in one direction, operations heads in a second direction while sales and design cuts their own trail. Progress in all areas is slow at best. Align strategies to:

  • Present a united force to the competition
  • Accelerate improvement initiatives
  • Improve shareholder return

Applying

SCOR methodology uses the following approach:

  • Establish your competitive landscape
  • Determine areas needing improvement
  • Resolve the material flow challenges
  • Resolve the information and work flow challenges
  • Implement in a phased, digestible fashion

Other SCOR Resources

SCOR theory is great but how does one actually apply it in an effective manner? Peter Bolstorff does a fantastic job of explaining how in his book, Supply Chain Excellence! (A Handbook for Dramatic Improvement Using the SCOR Model).
