Building a world-class supply chain doesn’t happen overnight. Spice maker McCormick & Co. set out to build a truly optimized global supply chain that would enable collaboration across functions and facilities—to establish global standards that would empower employees across the organization to lead with continuous improvement at the forefront of operations.
Today, McCormick can reflect on a 10-year journey that has transformed the supply chain to be a global function and strategic asset. By building a globally-focused leadership team, the company defined an approach aligned with key business goals. Central to the approach was APICS education and the SCOR model to align people, process, organization and technology, and create a global scorecard.
