Our Value Chain Management (VCM) Manager, Lead Manager and Senior Lead Manager certifications help VCM professionals to transform their companies and their careers by enabling them to orchestrate, architect, deploy and lead well-structured and well thought out Value Chain Management (VCM) program initiatives which act as an over-arching governance function for reengineering of Design Chains, Supply Chains, Procure-To-Pay and Order-To-Cash processes. After their certifications are in place your VCM business leaders will have the appropriate foundational understanding to employ the BreakPoint Business Process Reengineering methodology and approaches needed to accelerate your firm's progression through the process levels of the VCM Maturity Model.
In essence, we help your firm to answer the question, “Now that my firm has certified VCM Managers, VCM Lead Managers and VCM Senior Lead Managers, working on staff, now what?"
VCM Maturity Model accelerators leverage collaborative “Concurrent Enterprising” processes. At the highest maturity model level, we orchestrate peer-to-peer collaboration; Shared Industry Intelligence (SII) and Industry Benchmarking (IB) where companies work collaboratively to better understand and deal with the critical Cyber Threats, Risks and Losses (RTL) and all aspects of aggregated KPI and KRI data needed for VCM industry benchmarking purposes. They do this to reduce the costs of VCM and increase overall business safety, resilience and throughput.
