MBP 1/16 “Responsibilities and Extent of Subject Processing

“Transparency should be achieved in a coordinated manner, via a very carefully constructed team with clear responsibilities” (Interview – Risk Manager, Aviation)

In addition to the responsibilities for SCRM, decisions must consider the time constraints of employees (Schröder et al. 2013a, p. 5). The required personnel hours vary from a few days a year to a few hours a week and will include a scope of work beyond that of the acute handling of previous supply chain risks. The larger the company, the more time is usually spent on handling SCRM. However, this is only the case if there is strong management interest in the topic.

In numerous expert interviews and focus group discussions with company representatives and scientists, the following measures -which build on each other- were identified during the development of the maturity model: 

  • Identify the core issues in your company. To what extent are these core issues affected by Supply Chain risks? What is your goal? What do you want to achieve? How can you influence these core concerns?
  • Ensure sufficient human resources to support those responsible for SCRM.
  • Define individual persons responsible for each given SCRM category and make sure to include at least one other employee in addition to the head of the department.
  • When integrating the SCRM organization, take into account that the integration depends on a number of context factors, such as the size of the company, the structure and complexity of the SC, and the dynamics of environmental influences.
  • Find out whether best practice examples for SCRM already exist in your company or whether there are examples from elsewhere in the respective field.
  • Try to not hang the topic of SCRM on the shoulders of just one person at your company.
  • Try to integrate individual components of SCRM into your daily tasks.
  • Create a responsibility matrix that shows which departments perform full or limited tasks.
  • In addition to regular staffing, form an SCRM team consisting of employees from different departments, who then regularly meet to exchange information and play through various relevant scenarios.
  • Define a point person responsible for SCRM, who develops and promotes company-wide SCRM strategies.
  • Try to integrate SCRM into both the organizational and operational structure.
