Inventory Is Not a Problem; It is a Symptom An Executive Overview

The president of a client company asked the all too common question: “We have an inventory problem! We always seem to have too much, too little, or the wrong mix. This is a ‘front burner’ problem, and I’m leaning hard on my supply chain team. But as soon as we fix one thing, another inventory issue crops up. And we scramble to the end of every quarter. What do we need to do differently?”

The answer is often not what the president expects.
