Mining the Gaps for Strategic Supply Chain Value with Steve Clarke
By Kelly Barner | March 8, 2023
The simplest solution to a problem is most likely the best one. Cutting through the noise to find root causes can be challenging, however, especially when there seems to be an overly complicated digital answer to every business question.
In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes Steve Clarke. Steve is the Founder of BioSupply Consulting and the author of “Mine The Gaps,” a new book based on a framework he developed to help supply chain organizations achieve their strategic objectives with the least amount of effort and cost in the shortest amount of time.
In this conversation, Steve shares stories where simple solutions were able to be applied because talented team members stayed focused on their strategic objectives:
- The types of data procurement and supply chain professionals should prioritize so that they can deliver quick wins
- What it means to call out “metrics that make people do dumb things” and the consequences of not identifying them in time
- How decision makers can avoid wasting lots of money on technology they are not prepared to benefit from
