What makes a great Supply Chain Director?
Supply Chain Directors are responsible for ensuring product availability and seasonal planning and so need to have one eye on the future all the while ensuring that the day-to-day logistics operation runs smoothly.
They are increasingly important figures in ensuring the “clicks” side of the business marries up with the “bricks” side to deliver an effective, responsive customer experience.
They should also have a keen eye for cost saving as well as identifying opportunities to reduce the business’s environmental footprint. Overall, they must be strategic with an excellent grasp of data and strong people skills.
