Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Florida is best known for their coordination of helping hand for the building of affordable homes in communities all across the world. Although effective at their mission, the organization had been procuring supplies the same way for decades, with no major analyses or innovations to their processes.
HFH Florida’s CEO, Barbara Inman, decided to reach out to the University of South Florida’s (USF) Council for Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) for an analysis of their current decentralized procurement methodology. The group was also tasked with providing recommendations to the way HFH procures home-building supplies. USF CSCMP gathered and analyzed available purchasing data from 11 HFH locations across Florida, using Tableau as a statistical visualization tool for HFH’s CEO.
