Supply Chain Managers are the conductors in a business

 

Supply Chain Managers must oversee and manage the organizations’ overall supply chain, logistics strategy and operations in order to maximize the process efficiency and productivity.

As the SCM, you conduct an orchestra of products, services, and information not just within your organization but also through external suppliers and customers. Having a communication strategy in place for this sector and your business is going to strengthen your team to fulfill and exceed internal and external communication needs. 

We provide an eight-part communication intelligence reporting tool system, communication strategy and unparrelled support, that you use to understand the different communication styles around the table. With our customized plans, we facilitate your needs and coach you and your team to communication excellence.

Instead of an army of left-brainers employed to carry out mechanical, logical and purely analytical tasks, we are going to need a supply chain workforce able to do all the things that computers can’t. We’re going to need people who can draw conclusions from these complex systems and put them in context. And even more importantly, organizations are going to require people with strong communication skills who can work within and between teams across the multi-various and interconnected parts of the supply chain.  – Matt Davis senior vice president of research at SCM World

Driving a Culture of Excellence

Culture is typically defined as “the way we do things around here”. The C-Suite sets the tone and people follow from the top down, so the emphasis is therefore on how management and leaders communicate their culture.

By using our system, you will understand the cultural descriptors and actionable insights into your leadership team and across the organization.

TOMMY GEARY – SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, GLOBAL SALES OPERATIONS AT HEWLETT PACKARD ENTERPRISE

“My journey with Forté began over 15 years ago when I was a director in Dell. My focus at the time was on building a high performing team and although we were using other tools and workshops to try to achieve this, we were still operating as individuals and some people more engaged than others. I found that there was no real appreciation of different styles and needs of other team members, so I wanted to find a quick, efficient communication tool that remedied this.   Initially, we didn’t know what to expect but very quickly the Forté system became our regular team builder. It allowed us to come together as a group more, get to know each other better, develop as a high performing team and gain insights into individual development. We were able to work and deliver as a team more efficiently than ever before.   Since then, Forté has stayed with me and my different team members. It’s phenomenal. By aligning facilitation and coaching, it gives so much value on a multi-year journey of improvement.  Not a snapshot or day workshop, it gives the full picture of insights into yourself and each other. It’s dynamic and truthful and is the biggest team building differentiator versus anything else I’ve seen or used.”
