What is supplier management?

A systematic approach of assessing suppliers’ performance, strengths, weaknesses and capabilities to determine how best to segment and engage on different activities and initiatives. The focus is to develop a collaborative partnership that drives value, acceptable standards of quality, service and performance, reduces risk and delivers on our commitment to help customers lower total cost and while improving the health of the supply chain.
