Boutique supply chain consultancy, OP2MA, will be discussing how companies can scale their supply chain for financial success, with a free to attend webinar on Wednesday 21st July 2021 at 11am.

Free webinar: The 7Cs of Scale Up Success

OP2MA founder and ex-LEGO senior director, Calum Lewis, will be talking through the 7 Cs for successful supply chain growth, aimed at helping SMEs that are considering expanding their supply chain operations.

Calum said ‘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? 

‘To help companies avoid these costly mistakes, I will be taking companies through the steps they need to consider in order to ensure their expansion programmes are delivered successfully.’

The webinar will cover the following topics:

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