MBP 2/16 Measures and Best Practices for “Involving and Persuading the various Management Tiers”

“A decisive factor is the mindset of the executives. They must be open to the subject.” (Interview – Head of Logistics, Food Industry)

The SCRM owners can come from different hierarchical levels. The greater the involvement of higher and top level management in the SCRM, the greater the importance that will be ascribed to the topic within the company. 

In the numerous expert interviews and focus groups with company representatives and scientists for the development of the maturation model, the following measures were identified: 

  • Try to make the SCRM visible in the organizational structure–for example, create employee requirements or integrate the SCRM practices directly and openly into operations.
  • Supply chain risk information should be included in senior management decisions. To do this, ensure a consistent relay of information.
  • Promote risk awareness among management and employees by regularly highlighting positive successes and negative consequences.
  • Proactive supply chain risk measures should be rewarded. Create incentives to proactively take supply chain risk measures.
  • Try to involve management in SCRM as much as possible (e.g. participation in interdepartmental meetings, regular provision of information, distribution of status quo reports, etc).
  • Create binding guidelines or procedural instructions to increase the commitment of handling SCRM and ensure that these are adhered to. Make sure that management is strongly involved in this process.
  • Ensure that SCRM is a regular component of those meetings (planning meetings, strategy meetings, etc.) which involve management; otherwise, ensure management is informed about the respective details discussed therein. Ideally, the entire management team should come to support SCRM. Extensive financial investments should be made to the SCRM framework.
  • Ensure that significant investments are made in the SCRM.
