In “the Art of War” Sun Tzu defines leadership or generalship as the ability to influence people by providing purpose, direction and motivation. Applying this definition, leaders should be viewed as “assistants” to the company. When their assistance is complete, the company is strong and when their assistance is defective, the company is weak.
It is the same in any supply chain, when the supply chain leaders are strong, your company is strong. Supply chain leaders determine and communicate the strategy of their supply chains. When all of the leaders of the company understand the supply chain strategy of the company, the company will be stable and prosperous.
