About The 7Cs of Scale Up Success

Are you a SME leader looking  to expand your supply chain operations? Join us for this FREE webinar to find out the 7Cs of Scale Up Success!

Ex-LEGO senior director and Principal Supply Chain consultant, Calum Lewis, will be discussing the 7Cs required for Successful Supply Chain Scale Up.

  1. Capacity – too much or too little are both damaging for business revenues
  2. Culture – are the skills and capabilities that got the business to this stage what’s needed to get to the next level?
  3. Capability – operating on a different scale asks new questions of people
  4. Collaboration – decisions around what activities are performed in-house and those outsourced should be reviewed as part of planning growth
  5. Complexity – growth doesn’t automatically have to mean increased complexity
  6. Costs – understanding the nature of your costs and how they are driven
  7. Capital – the difference between total capacity and effective capacity – where is capital investment required?

Key Takeaways

Scaling up operations and the associated supply chain activities are fundamental decisions; the consequences of getting them wrong are always serious and can be fatal to a firm’s competitive capabilities and survival.

Capital employed and costs will increase; can these be offset by increased revenues in time? 

This session will help companies avoid these costly mistakes in order to ensure their expansion programmes are delivered successfully.
