Frequently Asked Questions

Things you may want to know about management consulting and UCTEC.

Why do you need a management consulting partner?

As a company, there are limitations relying on internal source alone to promote products and brand name to an overseas market, manage suppliers and projects, solve critical problems in terms of distance, time and cultural difference, communication efficiency and cost.

When issues arise, a management consulting partner can help diagnose the issues, find out the right business partners overseas, offer cost-effective solutions, implement the on-going projects smoothly, tremendously save your cost and time more than applicable consulting fees.

Why a management consulting partner is helpful amid the COVID-19 pandemic?

For supply chain planners the increasingly difficult balancing of demand and supply in the VUCA world (VUCA = acronym for variability, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) is becoming a hard-to-achieve goal amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In most areas demand is plummeting due to government regulations and corresponding store closures, consumer uncertainty and production stops. In other areas (e.g. medical accessories) demand and prices are exploding. Planners are overloaded with firefighting activities while facing availability constraints due to illness, remote work or missing childcare. 

It’s hard to predict when the demand will become stable, your overseas suppliers may have changed their strategies and processes to stay alive, rather than stay healthy. As the traveling ban is going on, it’s difficult to monitor and manage your suppliers and the ambiguity enlarges much bigger than before. A management consulting partner helps clients have greater visibility into the supply chains.
