Supply Chain Management

Navigating a microcosm of the global economy.

Korn Ferry’s Supply Chain Management Center of Expertise focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain best-in-class Supply Chain Officers and their direct reports. As the marketplace becomes more global and volatile, supply chains have absorbed the impact. Today’s supply chain leaders must be strategic thinkers, collaborators, and coordinators who optimize complex networks and global capabilities. Korn Ferry offers a full range of solutions designed to address supply chain leadership needs — from strategic search, competency-based assessments, and engaging, interactive high-potential leadership development programs to one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

The Supply Chain Officer: a strategic business partner.

Value creation, competitive advantage, and enabling growth are at the forefront of today’s supply chain agendas. Many companies recognize the need for a more comprehensive, integrated approach to supply chain management; however, they struggle to identify and develop the best talent to lead this evolution. Cross-functional experience in product innovation; customer-facing functions; broader P&L responsibility; knowledge of current automation and systems technologies; multi-industry or channel backgrounds; and a balance of vision, results orientation, expert skills, and collaborative/relationships skills all exemplify success factors for today’s supply chain leaders.
