- Report Details: This report is based on analysis of financial balance sheet and income statement data for the period of 2006-2013. To determine the companies to include in the Supply Chains To Admire list, progress of companies within thirteen industries were analyzed for performance and improvement. Companies performing above their peer group and demonstrating improvement are listed as Supply Chains To Admire.
- Objective: To analyze supply chain performance and improvement to understand which companies are operating at top performance levels and still driving improvement.
- Hypothesis: Nine out of ten companies are stuck at the intersection of operating margin and inventory turns. With declining growth and increasing complexity, supply chain excellence helps companies to drive superior performance on the balance sheet.
