Supply Chain Resilience
In a continuously evolving consumer landscape with rapidly changing market dynamics, building an agile and resilient supply chain is crucial. This was emphasised even more in 2020 with all the global and local challenges that directly impacted Australia including bushfires, COVID-19 disruption, panic buying, port industrial action and more. To continue enabling sustainable profitable growth, global supply chains need to become fully synchronised and strive to always remain customer driven. Let’s review together the key emerging forces that are changing our world, how it is shaping our supply chain thinking, our current footprint and aspiration as well interventions that have worked well for us at Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health.

Making Slow Moving supply chains fast(er)
Slow moving parts should not have slow moving supply chains. Motion Asia Pacific has been working on designing out the points in its supply chain that slows product flow down, including:
– Network design
– Creating new functionality in the planning tools
– Staff training through many parts of the business
– Working with suppliers
Creating the correct mix of people, skills and creative thoughts is all a part of the challenge and then you throw in a pandemic which focuses the mind even more.

Adnan Qureshi, Category Manager, SA Health
Streamlining HealthCare Technology Procurement by implementing Project Management Techniques
A 350 bed tertiary care hospital was facing a huge challenge to acquire technology to modernise and upgrade its ageing asset bases. The on-time delivery rate was about 20 per cent with no visibility of projects in the pipeline. Management deployed an automated workflow system assuming it would address the problem, but the problem aggravated instead.
Adnan introduced the idea of implementing fundamental project management techniques and faced huge resistance from the users and stakeholders citing lack of time and seeing no benefits in the approach.
Adnan persevered, piloting the work on a smaller scale, creating excel based project timelines, assigning a dedicated project manager and scheduling regular reviews. The process soon expanded to the entire program. And, after one year, the on-time project delivery increased to 80 per cent, while having a full view of the project’s portfolio for the next 12 -18 months available to the executives.

Turning the lights on dark store logistics – JB, you’ve done it again!
Discover how logistics technology enabled JB HiFi to successfully pivot and accelerate its e-commerce fulfilment strategy in direct response to COVID. As major retailers plunged into darkness during the mass shutter of retail operations, JB HiFi partnered with RADARO to enable a rapid and seamless transition into a same day, “dark store” logistics strategy that saw more than 80,000 orders fulfilled directly by retail staff over a 10 week period. Bold and ambitious, the results and impact have changed the very definition of “on demand” logistics for Tier 1 Australian retailers ongoing.
