What does it take to build a best-in-class supply chain?

Avaya: A supply chain management case study

Trust in the transformation. That’s what high-tech giant Avaya had to do when the company decided to radically change up how it manages its supply chain. Going from a self-proclaimed worst-in-class supply chain to one of the best in the business was no easy feat, but the rewards were well worth the effort.

“In the beginning, it was tough,” admits Benji Green, Avaya’s Senior Director, Integrated Supply Chain Planning & Operations, in a recent article published by Supply Chain Digital. “12-hour days, hair on fire supply constraints, excess inventory, completely manual processes, imbalanced supplier terms and conditions, poor cash to cash. You name it, it was bad. It was hard to imagine becoming best-in-class at the time.”
