Research: CFOs and the Supply Chain

As global competition continues to intensify, a growing number of companies are competing primarily on the nimbleness of their supply chains. Lean supply management, the growth of outsourcing, and the rise of make-to-order manufacturing have made supply chain management an increasingly critical element in creating and preserving value.

This study, released in August 2003, identifies what CFOs in some of the world's largest companies see as the key supply chain challenges facing their organizations. It also looks at the ways in which some leading CFOs are using their unique role and perspective to help overcome obstacles and promote greater distribution and purchasing efficiencies.

Developed jointly by CFO Research Services and UPS Supply Chain Solutions, "CFOs and the Supply Chain" is a comprehensive research study that explores how CFOs view the current state of supply chain management as well as opportunities for future improvements. More than 260 senior financial executives responded on their involvement in and the perceptions of supply chains within their companies.
