I hope that you enjoyed the article “The Complete Supplier Management Strategy.”
Ask yourself these questions:
- Is the rest of my company as well-versed about our supplier mangement strategy as our procurement department? What about other departments that may be involved?
- Do other departments know what we’re trying to accomplish and why?
- When the strategy results in success, is the procurement department advertising it to the rest of the company?
The article stress that communication is a necessary ingredient to improve success with a supplier management strategy. As with any strategy your procurement department employs, you should first communicate what you are trying to accomplish and why and then follow-up with the results. You’ll find that other departments within your organization are more likely to support your strategy and help you to achieve even greater results in the future. Communication is the key here.
