Supply chain

Accenture works with clients to deliver innovative supply chain strategies and solutions that enable profitable growth.


Accenture works with clients across a broad range of industries to deliver innovative supply chain strategies that enable profitable growth in new and existing markets.

In today's volatile and increasingly digital global business environment, companies need less of a supply chain and more of a supply network—able to move quickly and flexibly and capitalize on new innovations and respond to digital disruption. Most existing supply chain strategies were built on the assumption of stability, and designed to plan, produce and deliver on a just-in-time basis to assure lean operations and inventory. Now, that hard-won stability may actually hinder a company’s ability to rapidly respond to changing conditions. New technologies, such as social, mobile, analytics and cloud (SMAC), can disrupt supply chain operations—but they can also create opportunities to seize new market share, reduce costs, and gain greater supply chain control. While some organizations are trying to fend off disruption, others are finding ways to disrupt the status quo and seize competitive advantage.

Committed to helping clients achieve high performance through supply chain mastery, Accenture Strategy combines global industry experience and skills in supply chain strategy to help organizations transform their supply chain capabilities. We collaborate with clients to implement innovative solutions that align operating models to support business strategies, optimize global operations, and enhance the skills and capabilities of the supply chain workforce. We are firmly grounded both in business strategy and technology strategy, giving us a keen eye for using technology not just to enable the business strategy, but to help shape and drive it.
