The objective of TEC's Supply Chain Group Programme to empower supplier staff so that they can exploit proven tools of Kaizen, Lean Enterprise and Six Sigma for mutual benefit.
Normally, all suppliers will be SC21 signatories, and a major goal is to have everyone attain an SC21 Recognition Award. SC21 promotes a 360-degree approach to supplier development that generates short term gains in quality, delivery, responsiveness and cost-down as well as continual sustainable improvement.
All programmes are customised to be complementary to the existing host customer’s initiatives and/or sector specific requirements. Facilitation is through a blend of group training sessions & workshops matched with on-site mentoring sessions. Everything is focused on best practice approaches and techniques that are designed to exploit the benefits of the Supply Chain Group resulting in a win-win situation for all parties involved.
