In 2008 Supply Chain Council (SCC) was in dire straits — serious debt, an aging product line and disappointing membership numbers. When the management company filed for bankruptcy in December 2008 the SCC board asked Process Core Group to step in and take control of the situation. Under PCG leadership, new products and services were introduced, SCC was restored to a thought leader in the industry and training margins grew to 70%+. In 2014 SCC merged with APICS.
When Manufacturing Giant AB Volvo (VOLV: $36B sales) – maker of Truck, Aerospace, Bus, Boating, and Construction equipment – wanted to build their own IT BPM function, they turned exclusively to Process Core Group to provide the nuts-and-bolts planning, recruiting, training, mentoring, and process project piloting for North American and European Teams. They also turned to Process Core Group to help them craft research and communication to firm sponsorship in BPM across the company, in Operations teams as well as the IT function.
The Do-it-Yourself Home Building Retailer (LOW: $43B sales) learned how to do-it-themselves with Process Core Group. After their nascent BPM function stagnated quarter after quarter trying to anchor BPM with steering teams and frameworks but no business results, they turned to Process Core Group alone to help them rebuild their organization and operations with a focus on execution and not just standards, to train key staff in BPM off-the-shelf methodology with open frameworks, and to anchor their credibility with very high-value projects across their company.
Construction materials manufacturer CEMEX (CX: $14B sales) is building a supply chain for the future. A cross-functional team recognized the need to agree on a common supply chain strategy and brought in Process Core Group to help develop a supply chain strategy definition program and structure communication to executive management and regional organizations.
