Presentation prepared on the medical device supply chain and year-over-year progress on the Effective Frontier. It is questionable if the medical device supply chain is making progress. Why? Most are stuck at the intersection of operating margin and inventory turns. One of the reasons is the impact of mergers and acqusitions and the rate of change in the supply chain. In benchmarking, it is useful to look at financial metrics industry by industry to get a good view of what is possible and who is making the most progress.
In the presentation, there will be a sharing of the current state and a discussion of how to overcome the five fallacies to make progress.
