Fighting Inflation - What are Businesses Doing?
February 28, 2011 - SCMR Editorial
The Hackett Group, Inc. invites supply chain and procurement executives and others to participate in a newly-launched quick poll designed to assess how companies are responding to input cost inflations and the best practices they’re adopting to manage it.
Participants will find out what organizations are doing to not only mitigate it, but how they are using it as a catalyst to improve their ability to weather future shocks and gain advantage.
The poll looks beyond the current frenetic mitigation activities towards more proactive and effective management of supply, and seeks to answer questions such as:
The extent of inflation being experienced;
How much input cost inflation is being absorbed vs. passed on to customers;
What is being done to mitigate input cost inflation;
Short-term plans in place for improving the firm’s inflation-fighting capabilities;
Longer-term plans for identifying ways to reduce the impact of future inflation on input costs.
Participants will receive a complimentary research report with key research findings. The Hackett Group’s inflation quick poll is open until March 9, 2011.

All responses are strictly confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. Respondents will receive a summarized report including additional insight from The Hackett Group regarding this topic.
