Abstract

Discover Lenovo’s Worldsourcing strategy based on the approach to source materials, innovation, talent, logistics, infrastructure and production wherever they are best available. From an end-to-end supply chain perspective, Worldsourcing uses a decentralized business model that distributes production in global hubs of excellence to drive efficiency and create an important operational edge. As a global enterprise with a unique heritage in China, Lenovo exports the best from China and brings it to the rest of its operations worldwide to ensure global optimization. Relying on free-flowing movement and innovation of ideas, Lenovo’s end-to-end global supply chain is leveraging the best of both worlds.
