Why work with an outside expert?

In our 25+ years in consulting and working with complex supply chain requirements, we’ve found that one outstanding value of an outside consultant is that they offer an objective viewpoint. That freedom from internal influences encourages independent and impartial viewpoints, which removes barriers and enables more effective problem-solving.

At CCP Global, we find that this neutrality is often the most valuable tool we bring to our process improvement clients.

Focus is another significant benefit of working with an outside professional. Your internal employees have full-time jobs they need to keep up with. Consultants maintain a dedicated focus on resolving the client’s specific challenges which results in less disruption to the processes.

How complex is supply chain process improvement?

That depends upon the project. However, we have found that many issues can be resolved with microprojects.

A microproject can help get smaller issues back on track before they become bigger problems.

Here are some areas that benefit from a targeted microproject:

  • Process optimization
  • System administration
  • Reporting, analytics and KPIs
  • Change management and user adoption challenges
  • Continuous improvement

Microprojects are quick wins that require no downtime and often make a big difference to your process flow and efficiency.
