Five Stages of Supply Chain Maturity

Why is Supply Chain maturity important? Because it can have a devastating financial effect when companies experience supply chain disruptions and research has shown that Supply Chain process performance is strongly related to Supply Chain maturity.

Five stages of supply chain maturity have been identified. They are:
  1. Functional Focus
  2. Internal Integration
  3. External Integration
  4. Cross-Enterprise Collaboration
  5. The Next Generation Supply Chain
Most companies are somewhere between stages 1 and 2. In a maturity matrix, the above stages are cross-referenced against the Planning, Sourcing, Making, Delivering and Returning supply chain phases. Many companies have multiple degrees across the phases.

Best in class organizations have their supply chain strategies at the product, not corporate level since product needs vary depending on their various characteristics including: life cycle status, forecast volatility, delivery requirements, etc.
