Zinata’s people and results at work.

Here is a sampling of some contributions to the ever-evolving art and science of supply chain efficiency and improvement from some of its most highly regarded practitioners.
This is hard! What do you need to consider to drive a successful Supply Chain transformation?
Supply chain transformation presents a complex “change” challenge, for you cannot approach it from one point of view only. You need multiple diagnostic lenses in order to see what is happening and to strategize the best way forward. The SCGuideStar team, drawing on comprehensive research and thought leadership in supply chain and organization/leadership transformation, honed five lenses for the transformational leader to look through in order to see deeply into what is happening within his/her business. This study and report was created by Roddy Martin: VP of Supply Chain at Oracle, formerly AMR/Gartner, Accenture and Zinata Advisor; Pat McLagan, leadership and transformation expert and Zinata Business Partner; and Don Wirth, of Zinata and former head of Global Supply Chain, DuPont.
