SSCL PROJECT CAPABILITIES AND APPROACH
Our team are experienced practitioners with senior operational experience within both Government and Industry environments. We maintain a high level of ability to very quickly understand the organisational and commercial environment to execute effectively. We have functional expertise within Supply Chain, Logistics, and Strategic Procurement.
Capability and Maturity Assessments can be conducted, which include Skill and Competency Development. All projects are supported by specialists through strategy development, change development, process mapping, technical writing, inventory optimisation and in-depth knowledge of industry best practice.
Focus is the delivery of practical and sustainable outcomes. Knowledge transfer is a critical element and point of difference that enables clients to be self-reliant to ensure the outcomes are sustainable. Preference is to work within agreed budgets to deliver specified outcomes.
