Did you know that the Supply Chain Industry is expected to grow manifold and overtake the IT industry across the world? The Global Supply Chain Industry is worth close to $1 Trillion as of 2011 and is estimated to grow at a rate of 4-7% per year according to Industry Analysts.

 

1.   Dependability

Be it Chemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Manufacturing, FMCG, Advertising, Media, IT, Services and any other industry, one cannot run their operations without the effective use of Supply Chain.

2.  Criticality

The Supply Chain department in any company plays a significant role in not only procuring the products and services required by the company but also optimizing all the other functions in the company such as HR, Finance, Operations, Logistics, Warehousing and Distribution. Gone are the days when Procurement used to be a blue collar job. Today, Procurement is not only a highly strategic work profile but also one of the most coveted jobs in the market. This is attributed to the significant cost savings that the Procurement department achieves not only in the buying of raw materials, products and services for the company but also in other departments by integrating the best practices through means of Research and creating appropriate strategies. This segment is called Strategic Sourcing.
