Supply Chain Integrity

 

Instead of asking the question "What is integrity?", let's take a look at how integrity is defined based on its application.

For the business application computer systems that our supply chains rely on, we need integrity in their functionality (the ability to perform calculations correctly all the time).  As such, we need integrity in our computer software. 

These supply chain systems must run on reliable computer hardware, thus we need integrity in our computer hardware.

Our business processes must close functional gaps, thus bringing integrity to how we operate. 

In each example above, however, there is a single common component - the human element.  Without integrity in our people, we will not have integrity in our organization.

We invite you to download, read, and share the following article on supply chain integrity.  It's foundation uses the three key elements of integrity - wholeness, consistency, and objectivity - defined by Douglas Ross of Principle Dynamics who also publishes the Results Through Integrity site content.  Don't be fooled into thinking that these are esoteric concepts without real business application - they are the core to real integrity which, as you have seen throughout this web site, is the foundation to good supply chain governance, and ultimately to success.
