KPMG has been named a leading global service provider for Supply Chain Planning consulting services in a new ALM Intelligence report.

The ALM Vanguard: Supply Chain Planning Consulting 2019 report assesses and ranks 24 global firms on their demonstrated ability to create impact for clients. Leaders are deemed “at the top of the market” based on their depth of expertise and their ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. The report calls market Leaders “unique in their ability to independently execute a broad array of projects across the full spectrum of client contexts.”

KPMG “excels in its ability to steer clients through large-scale, multi-year transformations from strategy through execution," says report author Naima Hoque Essing, ALM Intelligence Senior Research Analyst, Management Consulting Research.

“Effective supply chain management is critical today to accelerate corporate growth and profitability, increase operational efficiency and competitiveness, and offer new value to businesses,” said Chris Foster, Global Lead, Operations Center of Excellence, KPMG International. “Supply chain planning that's strategic, accurate and transformational is indispensable amid the complex and ever-changing technological, economic and regulatory challenges facing businesses in every sector. We are proud to be named a global leader in the latest ALM Intelligence report for our supply chain planning consulting services and expertise.”  

As the ALM report states: “Through better definition of roles, decision rights and accountability sustained through performance management and technology solutions, KPMG demonstrates consistent success in elevating and maturing client planning organizations into a truly integrated, high-functioning operation that is capable of delivering real positive results.”

KPMG was ranked `Best in Class' for Needs Assessment and Project Management and ranked `strong' for its Operating System and Management System capabilities. The report notes that `Best in Class' firms “evidence deep capabilities in specific areas of supply chain planning consulting and stand out from their peers for their highly effective and often innovative consulting approaches and service delivery.” 

  • On KPMG's market-leading Needs Assessment capabilities, the report states: “In providing tailored insights that incorporate a holistic end-to-end value chain perspective that extends into financial and risk management, KPMG partners with clients in uncovering opportunities to drive sustainable supply chain improvements. It uses a combination of deep and pragmatic domain expertise and diagnostic tools and methods to draw out organizational knowledge and develop customer-centric planning recommendations that balance enterprise-wide risk, performance and costs.”
  • On KPMG's market-leading Project Management, the report notes: “KPMG's Integrated Business Planning and Value Delivery (Digital) transformation frameworks guide clients in both the high-level design and tactical execution of multi-pronged initiatives needed to clarify and align their operating model, management systems and master data management. The firm excels in its ability to steer clients through large scale, multi-year transformations from strategy through execution.” 

The report praises KPMG's Approach for its focus on “strengthening and integrating” clients' S&OP (sales and operations planning), commercial and financial planning activities to achieve desired strategic and business objectives, and praises KPMG's Practice Structure, which through its supply chain center of excellence develops consistent, structured tools, techniques, methodologies and materials that support the sales through delivery.
