Supply Chain Systems Thinking ( Duration- One Day)

 

Systems Thinking is a holistic approach to problem-solving that looks at problems not as isolated challenges but rather as part of the larger system in which a function or process operates. Traditional thinking focuses on separating the individual pieces of what is being studied, whereas, systems thinking focuses on understanding how various parts interact with each other and the collective effect they produce overall.

A supply chain is a complex system spread across different functions and organizations.

Systems thinking is the foundation of the supply chain discipline, yet it is invisible due to

conflicting objectives and lack of alignment – commonly known as ‘silos’.  As a result,

the decisions made are sub-optimal, solving one part of problem and creating a bigger

problem in the other part of the supply chain system. Systems thinking help managers

make sense of complex data, make better decisions, manage change and create

sustainable value for the business.
