KPMG International’s “best in class” operating model capability for supply chain risk management has earned the prestigious distinction of being a market-leading “Vanguard” organization in the latest competitive landscape analysis of consulting firms by ALM Intelligence.
“Providers that achieve Vanguard status demonstrate either market-leading depth in particular capabilities or meaningful breadth across a broad spectrum of capabilities,” the report states in naming KPMG as an ALM Intelligence Vanguard Leader. “Combining its capabilities in supply chain operations with a deep understanding of risk and compliance, KPMG firms excel in helping clients design and stand up new, third-party supplier risk and compliance programs, and subsequently evolving them into more holistic, integrated and comprehensive enterprise risk-management programs.”
KPMG was the only consulting organization evaluated as “very strong” on capabilities related to operating model, implementation and tools, and was the only organization in its segment (Supply Chain Multiservice firms) assessed as “very strong” in implementation. KPMG’s supply chain risk management operating model capability was rated Best in Class and KPMG was among the few organizations deemed to be “at the forefront” in addressing a broad range of risks as part of broader enterprise risk-management initiatives that elevate supplier risk into a more strategic, higher-level board and C-suite discussion.
“Managing supply chain risk today demands that organizations focus not only on risks directly impacting internal operations but also on the risks and risk-management practices of their customers, suppliers and supplier’s suppliers to minimize the potential for business disruptions that can dramatically impact business performance and stability,” said Erich L. Gampenrieder, KPMG International’s Global Head of Operations Advisory and Head of Global Operations Center of Excellence. “We are proud to be acknowledged for our efforts to generate innovative initiatives that are helping organizations move beyond managing known supply chain risk sources in order to gain critical visibility into unknown or unpredictable risks that transcend the traditional supplier risk landscape.”
