In addition, the highly outsourced and often disconnected functions that make up today’s extended supply chain increase the importance of comprehensive Control Tower capabilities. Achieving cross-functional alignment, however, remains a challenge for most firms.
Bringing effective, streamlined S&OP and Control Tower visions to life require seamless teamwork between key business divisions and a comprehensive platform strategy. Our team of experienced consultants and engineers partner with our clients to guide them through the challenges of deploying S&OP and Control Tower solutions to produce short- and long-term gains for the overall organization.

As companies try to consider all the elements that can affect their supply chains, they often face the issue of choosing the right approach and tools to monitor and analyze all the data that is be available.

3/6 Supply Chain
Globalization and increased outsourcing has expanded the end-to-end supply chain, leading companies to search for ways to enable effective visibility and collaboration. In turn, these strategies lead to new roles or functions of a traditional supply chain, calling for a need for tools and processes that deliver close collaboration between resources, internally and externally.
Supply Chain Quarterly has noted, “Supply chain collaboration is a hot topic today—and no wonder: companies that collaborate effectively across the supply chain have enjoyed dramatic reductions in inventories and costs, together with improvements in speed, service levels, and customer satisfaction.”
Given the interconnectedness of the supply chain, strengthening collaboration can enhance supplier, channels, customers and partner performance as well as monitor and manage any unforeseen exceptions. Barkawi has the experience to help client define and implement the new tools and processes, with effective change management, across a single function or the end-to-end supply chain. Let us help you get started.
4/6 Supply Chain
Consumers and businesses operate at (nearly) the speed of light. To meet challenges created by clients’ need for speed, more companies are turning to supply chain digitization to create an ecosystem that utilizes tightly woven technologies to eliminate traditional supply chain siloes.
Outlining a plan for integration and automation of key processes such as demand forecasting, supply planning, inventory management and procurement is just the tip of the iceberg. Effective digitization also requires underlying processes such as managing the influx of critical data, leveraging the cloud and increasing supply chain transparency. Identifying these moving pieces, building and executing a strategy for supply chain digitization calls for the right resources and expertise.
