Metrics That Matter
Victor Engesser, RVCF
At RVCF we believe that building and using a better retail scorecard requires a complete understanding of which metrics matter the most and how these metrics influence corporate performance. To help our retail members fully understand these metrics and their relationships to bottom line results, RVCF has partnered with Supply Chain Insights to help us research and present industry best thinking on this subject. Starting with a survey in January we will analyze the relationships between scorecard metrics and corporate performance and deliver at our May 2014 Conference important new insights around the "Metrics that Matter."
If you are not familiar with Supply Chain Insights, the company was founded in 2002 by Lora Cecere. Supply Chain Insights is focused on delivering independent, actionable, and objective advice for supply chain leaders. They work to understand which practices and technology make the biggest difference to corporate performance; they do this by analyzing supply chain trends, evolving technologies and which metrics matter. Lora has been studying the progress of supply chain leaders that are successfully balancing growth, profitability, cycles, and complexity and has termed this the Supply Chain Effective Frontier. Using a database of over 50 financial ratios with 20 years of data, the Supply Chain Insights team is able to determine which metrics matter for a specific industry and they're even able to drill down to specific company.
This prior research, combined with a deep understanding of retailer scorecard metrics and use, will help us uncover new and important insights around the scorecard metrics that truly matter most to your overall performance and supplier relationships. Whether you are in the supply chain, compliance, inventory management, finance, or merchandising, we invite you to attend this important session on May 5, 2014 and look forward to seeing you at our Spring conference!
