First, research and identify an organization where the mission and supply chain may not align.
Second, consider the key stakeholders that influence this organization and whose impact contributes to the operation of its supply chain. For each of the stakeholder groups below use the Influence and Interest quadrant methodology to outline the potential influence that each of these groups could have on this organization’s supply chain:
suppliers of raw materials, components, and servicesgovernments imposing international and national regulationsNGOsemployeescustomers and consumerssociety in generalcompetitors
Share the outcome of the analysis that demonstrates the importance of alignment of mission, supply chain, and stakeholders in a memo (400-600 words) to your SVP of Supply Chain. Use external research and examples to support your points. Be certain your memo answers the following questions:
What potential misalignment between the organization and its supply chain did you discover? What are the implications?
In performing your stakeholder analysis, which stakeholders came out as the most important to the supply chain?
Which stakeholders might have conflicting priorities and why?
Provide a hypothetical RACI chart.
How might the highest priority stakeholders have influenced the misalignment (either positive or negative)? Explain your rationale.
What recommendations do you have to engage stakeholders to better align the supply chain with the overall organization?
