Staff need to be trained to see the ‘bigger picture’. There is often a feeling that staff involved in the supply chain only need to know the exact duties that they need to perform, well in fact it is really helpful if those staff knows about the whole Supply chain, knowledge Is value.
Staff who are well informed and well trained will be more useful within the supply chain because they are valuable members of the team.
