Whose Supply Chain Is More Global Than Lenovo's?

When it comes to finding a truly global company with a truly global supply chain, it's hard to out-globalize Lenovo. When the Chinese computer maker bought the PC business of IBM two years ago, the resulting company's supply chain was spread out all over the globe, with clusters in Raleigh, N.C., Beijing, China and Singapore. The combination also created what many consider to be an unprecedented array of different business cultures in a single company.
But through strong supply chain strategies and leadership, Lenovo has focused on the best aspects and processes within the company and created a shining example of what a global supply chain really means.
