Why The Pentagon Wants To Be More Like McDonald’s

The department would be lovin’ it if they could mirror some of McDonald’s supply chain strategies. “taking a page from McDonald’s, who is very good at managing and acquiring goods and services by category.” The example of the humble two-by-four, [lumber] for which the Pentagon had 22 different acquisition contracts. “We necked it down to two contracts — $18 million in savings, which seems small, but when you have 40,000 contracting officers, those small items start to add up very quickly.”
