One of the top wholesale health food supply chain distributors and suppliers in the USA found itself struggling with an age-old business dilemma during peak season: how could they improve production efficiency to meet supply demands under the challenges of labor management?
A surge in demand necessitated this wholesale giant to hire temporary employees, while production leadership struggled with making effective business decisions and lacked the essential problem-solving tools. This scenario led to suboptimal performance and limited their capacity to respond adequately to market conditions.
Ready to tackle the issue head-on, the company approached POWERS for a short 10-week intervention aimed at rapidly enhancing their production leadership’s skills and capabilities to navigate this critical juncture in their business cycle.
This respected supply chain player in the food industry found itself facing a critical juncture marked by challenges in managing its workforce and making its production process efficient during the busiest time of the year. As customer demand surged, they had to bring in temporary workers, which complicated their operations. Meanwhile, their leadership team struggled with lacking effective tools for problem-solving and necessary skills. This disconnect between what they aimed for and what they achieved led to less-than-optimal performance and difficulties in quickly adapting to market changes.
