How Different Stakeholders Value Supplier Management « Spend Matters

How Different Stakeholders Value Supplier Management « Spend Matters | Direct Materials Sourcing | Scoop.it

In the above-linked paper, my colleague Peter Smith notes that different stakeholders in the business value supplier management differently. Appreciating this is one of the first steps to building a successful supplier management program. For example, in Peter’s view, board-level stakeholders are considered about such areas as “supplier contribution to strategic goals, strategic risk management, managing competition or reciprocal trading (i.e., balance of trade), driving partnerships” and related high-value areas. General business stakeholders are a level down, focused on generally wanting to create “wider value from suppliers,” which might include information and supplier management areas pertaining to “innovation and development” and “contribution to the top line.”
