The Axia VCI surveys employees across business units to determine an organization’s internal capabilities as well as those of your customers, key suppliers and partners in the following areas. Recent research by the Axia Institute at Michigan State University found that supply chain managers believe these competencies drive between 25-35% of a company’s ability to reduce costs and increase customer responsiveness, quality, and speed to market.
Data is collected from employees across your business, and learning opportunities are prescribed based on organizational performance in all competencies. Importantly, the VCI assesses the competencies driving directional changes for these outcome variables: cost, quality, customer responsiveness, and speed to market.
Determining which variables are influencing these important business outcomes allows organizations to determine how ready they are to make this important cultural shift.
