Dive Deep and Deliver (Supply Chain Transformation 2016-2021)

The Submarine business presents a complex supply chain, a fragile supply base and a build requiring supply chain professionals capable of managing long term relationships with significant capability.

In 2016, a new Director plus a changing programme and customer environment presented the opportunity to transform the Function in anticipation of the challenges. With Board approval, the team embarked on a 5 year programme to address leadership & management, organisation, culture, capability, integration and supply strategy & management.

The Function has now grown, re-organised, up skilled, is performance driven, is integrated with programmes and is known for a 'can do' attitude.
