SCRC Data among Sources in WSJ ‘Management Top 250’ Ranking of Companies

Two of the 37 data inputs used in the Wall Street Journal’s inaugural “Management Top 250” ranking of companies, published recently and based on the Drucker Institute’s View of Corporate Performance, includes data based on processes developed by NC State Poole College Professor Robert Handfield, director of the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative in Poole College, and Yung-Yun Huang, a recent graduate of NC State University’s interdisciplinary doctoral program in operations research.

Produced in partnership with the Drucker Institute, a unit in Claremont Graduate School, the “landmark ranking marks the first time the ideals and teachings of the late business guru Peter Drucker have been used to analyze and compare the performance of major U.S. companies,” the Journal reported, noting that the ranking “is based on an analysis of 37 data inputs provided by 12 third-party sources.”

The SCRC was the source for the Innovation Rating and the Social Responsibility Rating. In the innovation category, metrics related to spending management, category management, strategic sourcing and supplier relationship management. In the social responsibility category, metrics related to supply chain policies, practices and results, including audits and lawsuits, with respect to human relations and the environment.
