Please visit the link below for part I of the post. The first part provided a high level overview of the four step process of establishing an internal Supply Chain analytics team (reproduced below).
Recap: As mentioned in part I of the post, finding the purpose of the team is critical so that you can make sure that the team is formed and designed in an optimal way. As a part of that process, we mapped the Supply Chain challenges of our typical company using a Six Sigma process mapping approach.

Skillsets requirement generation
Now that we know what are the different types of analytical approaches the team will be working on, we need to determine what type of Analytics skill set corresponds with these Analytical approaches. Few examples of the process of skill set determination are shown below:
Now that we have a fair idea of how skillset requirements need to be defines, we need to analyze how to determine the team structure and headcount of your internal Supply Chain center of analytics.
