In a supply chain management company of pharmaceutical raw material environment, cross-functional teams should include members from a variety of disciplines including sourcing, marketing, sales, finance etc.
It is important to build flexibility into team design since the sourcing of API, Intermediates Expecients and bulk raw material, process is extremely data-driven and can require disciplines to come in and go out to join and leave the team over time.
Following are the basic conditions required while figuring a good team for pharmaceutical sourcing company involved in supply chain management:
- The right combination of knowledge, experience and perspective to do the job is required in each individual of a team.
- Individuals must work together with a high degree of interdependence between themselves.
- The goal represents a challenge (recurring or unique)
A long lead time is required to charter this group, because once the decision is made to create the team, proper team composition is important to ensure that all necessary disciplines are represented.
These Pharmaceutical sourcing companies with a shortage of experienced staff must instead rely on rigorous training programs related to sourcing, marketing and customer care, increased management oversight, outside consultants, and extensive quality support systems to optimize performance of the team individuals. But these resources often result in higher costs.
