Experience Overview Mondher is an Associate Partner in the IBM Supply Chain Strategy group. The practice is responsible for providing strategic and operational guidance to senior executives within client organizations. Mondher is an Industrial Engineer and a Global Supply Chain Strategist with over 13 years of global management and manufacturing consulting experience. Primary focus has been the design and implementation of Supply Chain Management strategies and tools, Advanced Planning and Scheduling solutions and Theory-Of-Constraints initiatives. Mondher is a frequent speaker at various supply chain events (APICS, SCC, AMR, etc.) and has published a number of articles on various topics ranging from supply chain strategy to reducing the environmental impact of logistics operations. He is also a co-inventor of a supply chain carbon modeling tool (patent pending). Mondher is a universal citizen and his passion for solving global supply chain problems along with his fluency in 4 languages has led him to operate in four continents Sample Engagements
Helped one of the world’s largest fabless companies (wireless phone chip segment) define and implement a comprehensive supply chain collaboration model (VMI, Consignment and Schedule Sharing) with three of its most strategic customers on 3 continents.
Led a major supply chain strategy definition for one of Europe’s largest industrial conglomerates. Activities included assessing state of current operations model, compiling and documenting appropriate best practices and devising a novel supply chain vision that is customer centric (secured agreement on a new market segmentation) and emphasizes the agreed upon core competency (fulfillment).
Led a major supply chain strategy redesign effort at McDonald’s. This executive level initiative assessed competitive trends and provided a global vision for the future supply chain integration model along with a ‘playbook’ of practical steps to achieve the vision
Selected by AMR Research as an SME and voting panelist for the 2007 World’s Top 25 Supply Chains
Served as the Make Best Practices Lead and co-author of SCOR 7.0
OBJECTIVES Briefly discuss the challenges most companies face in optimizing the integration of their global supply chain operations Provide a critical analysis of the root cause(s) of these challenges Provide an Overview of IBM’s Approach and Competitive Differentiators 1 2 3
First off, what is Global SCI and why is it important?
Global competition is, to a large extent, a competition between supply chain models.
Superior supply chain execution, while not sufficient for business success, is a necessary condition
The supply chain needs to be aligned with the market needs Complication # 1 Complication # 2 Complication # 3 Supply chain costs need to be minimized Supply Chain Integration is the act of turning a complex and diverse network of partners and operations into a functioning ecosystem. The supply chain needs to be flexible and responsive Need to ensure consistency in design and execution Outsourcing is a key strategic imperative Shrinking control yet ultimate accountability to customers ABC, Inc. Tier 1 Tier 2

An Internal View Division / BU / Geo People Processes Systems Technology Measures Division / BU / Geo People Processes Systems Technology Measures Division / BU / Geo People Processes Systems Technology Measures People Processes Systems Technology Measures Lack of true Supply Chain organization Excessive customization, often for no reason, with limited, if any, synergies between divisions Too many systems and instances hindering data consolidation and sharing Disparate systems and supporting technologies hinder integration and collaboration Inconsistent and often conflicting set of measures Corporate HQ
Why Is Global Supply Chain Integration a Difficult Task? The Uncanny Resemblance Between Complex Systems And Supply Chains according to Chaos Theory
Complex systems consist of a large number of elements.
The elements have to interact and this interaction must be dynamic.
The Interaction is fairly rich, i.e. any element in the system influences, and is influenced by, quite a few other ones.
Firstly, the interactions are non-linear .
The interactions usually have a fairly short range, i.e. information is received primarily from immediate neighbours.
There are loops in the interaction.
Complex systems are usually open systems , i.e. they interact with their environment.
Complex system operate under conditions far from equilibrium.
Complex systems have a history. Not only do they evolve through time, but their past is co-responsible for their present behaviour.
Each element in the system is ignorant of the behaviour of the system as a whole.
Root Cause # 1 The Gap Between Business Needs And Business Models Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Business creation and local market establishment Aggressive Global Growth Saturation Reputation Matters Growth Matters Execution Matters Suitability of Supply Chain Models and Tools Low High Elapsed Time / Supply Chain Planning Complexity High Low ABC, Inc. Tier 1 Tier 2 ABC, Inc.
Root Cause # 2 – The Challenge Of Internal Integration “Tell Me How You’ll Measure Me, And I’ll Tell You How I’ll Behave” Corporate HQ Low High High Low CEO CSO* (*) – Global Chief Supply Chain Officer EMEA Division CEO CSO* BU XYZ CEO CSO* A desire to grow rapidly (Phase 2) provided divisions with a great deal of independence which led to the proliferation of overly localized supply chain processes and solutions While the division-level supply chain officer might listen to the corporate-level officer, his/her performance/bonus is decided by the Division/BU head The tendency to promote local performance has greatly diminished the scope and impact of corporate supply chain officers
Root Cause # 3 – The Challenge Of External Integration Integration is about Collaboration; However, Are We Wired For It? http://www.newsweek.com/id/170380 The Idea: Unlike ants and bees, humans aren't hard-wired for cooperation; we tend to act out of self-interest. That inclination repeatedly draws us into "social dilemmas" where, in an attempt to gain more for ourselves, we ultimately fare worse than we would have by cooperating. The evidence: The trick is to establish an agreement where everyone's self-interest is best served by cooperating. That means removing incentives to violate the agreement. The Conclusion: Businesses are nothing but federations of human beings. We think we’re different and unique and we behave in ways that protect and promote that uniqueness. We need to overcome some innate apprehensions to build a winning value proposition for key supply chain partners
Root Cause # 4 – The Issue of Asymmetric Benefits What’s in it for me? Many Supply Chain Integration Efforts failed because the incentives were not properly defined and established

Consulting Guideline # 2 Define the Right Levers for a Globally Integrated Supply Chain Model Company ABC People Processes Systems Technology Measures / Reporting Most companies’ (and their consultants!) reflex is to consolidate their supply chain supporting systems (e.g. reducing # of SAP instances, etc.) Always start with these dimensions taking into account the company structure and working model
Does the company want to have a global fulfillment model (e.g. ship from anywhere to anywhere) or prefer to have regional fulfillment centers isolated from each other
Do the various business units (or geo’s) compete for the same resources?
Global Supply Chain Integration is, above all, about integrating data feeds to provide a holistic view of the system performance. The choice of a centralized or distributed SC infrastructure should not be driven by technology but rather by real business needs
