Gartner 2016 Supply Chain Top 25

It’s a stellar list, some old and some new.  The measures are based on Peer and Gartner opinions (50%), and Return on Assets (ROA), Inventory Turns, and three-year weighted Revenue growth (WRG3), which are 40%. There’s also a corporate responsibility measure, not a very discriminating one.

Again it is biased toward capital intensive firms, manufacturers and a very few distributors (Amazon, Schneider). Perhaps that’s how it should be, but the advances are coming faster elsewhere.  Notable absence: Caterpillar, which has graced the list in past years. Their revenue is down.  Interesting that 8 of the firms had negative 3 year WRG3.  Amazon topped the list with 20% WRG3.

Gartner, Inc. has released the findings from its annual Supply Chain Top 25, identifying supply chain leaders and highlighting their best practices.
