The new organisation of the supply chain function
In 2018 the supply chain management structure was renewed creating a new matrix organisation and identifying the contacts for procurement in the most effective corporate positions from the point of view of acquisitions. Generating an increasingly effective partnership between corporate functions and business functions will enable Snam to simplify processes, cut costs and adjust flexibility in response to market requirements.
Innovating processes, keeping a vision focused on change, anticipating future needs and developing the skills of suppliers are the essential elements at the foundation of the new model adopted by the Company to strengthen the supply chain.
This vision of operational excellence also includes the establishment of a procurement academy, a working group set up during the year including the functions responsible for procurement in Snam and some leading publicly-owned Italian companies to share best practices and provide the best solutions currently available.
