Traditionally, the purpose of supplier management was to ensure outsourcing outcomes matched the intent of the contract. Now, as companies seek to drive more value from their strategic supplier relationships, Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) is expanding to a broader range of activities, including risk, performance, and governance.
Today’s supplier managers are responsible for key objectives, such as driving innovation from their large outsourcing providers, ensuring the right mitigation plans are in place, and guaranteeing performance is at par. Misses can be highly visible, so it’s important to manage these relationships effectively.
