Why do I need to nominate a Self Help Champion (SHC)

Self-Help is a fully operational Jaguar Land Rover supplier directive which is managed by the Global Supplier Integration (GSI) team through the Global Supplier Community Portal.

This directive enables suppliers to take full responsibility (ultimate ownership with the Self-Help Champion - SHC) for their own progress through the end to end stages of their connectivity & capability obligations

  • Enabling you to take control of your own needs
  • Respond to customer requirements quicker
  • Reduce bureaucratic processes
  • Ensures a lean approach to supplier integration
  • A single point of contact for all integration issues (SHC)

The role of Self Help Champion

The supplier should have identified a Leader as their Self-Help Champion. The Self-Help Champion must be empowered to ensure the execution of the supplier's site on-boarding timings and integration objectives are met.

  • Can you remove (or escalate) road-blocks to ensure all tasks leading to effective collaboration are executed?
  • Are you able to make positive changes to your companies working processes in line with changing JLR requirements?
  • Are you able influence rapid changes to your IT set up?
  • Are you able to influence (within various departments) training requirements for JLR software applications?

These are multi-functional tasks. The SHC is not expected to execute each and every task. The role is to ensure these tasks happen quickly and effectively.
