The value of a systematic approach to supplier evaluation

The value of a systematic approach to supplier evaluation | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
A systematic approach to supplier evaluation has developed both awareness and competence in team members as well as increased the professionalism in supplier dialogue. Properly used, supplier evaluation and classification are some of the most important tools you have available as a procurement organization to focus on and develop business together with the right supplier.

Really excellent, detailed explanation of best practices in supplier evaluations across diverse criteria. Of course, I'd love to see "Sustainability" be expanded to encompass "CSR Performance" - and have it weighted much more! (That's the trend we are seeing with our customers...)

#Pymes Técnicas Lean para la Gestión del Inventario

#Pymes Técnicas Lean para la Gestión del Inventario | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it
Las técnicas Lean son utilizadas por cada vez más empresas para reducir costes, mejorar la flexibilidad y, de esta manera, tener más tiempo para dedicarse a sus clientes. Son muchos los beneficios derivados de estas estrategias, y es por esto que los profesionales del management han trabajado en identificar cómo las técnicas Lean pueden ser utilizadas para crear inventarios más flexibles, eficientes y colaborativos.

Lean engloba una serie de iniciativas destinadas a crear y mejorar el valor en el inventario de una empresa. Para llevar esto a cabo hay que identificar el malgasto de materiales, tiempo y esfuerzo a través de un proceso de mejora continua que busque la máxima eficiencia y la perfección. El origen del movimiento Lean lo encontramos en el concepto del flujo continuo de los procesos de la cadena de montaje de Henry Ford, en 1920. A lo largo de estos casi cien años, el concepto ha sido modificando y ahora se aplica a casi todo los tipos de industrias.

Become a Procurement Action Hero with Supply Market Intelligence - webinar

Become a Procurement Action Hero with Supply Market Intelligence - webinar | Supply chain News and trends | Scoop.it

Procurement is a field full of fancy-sounding initiatives like transformation, relational buying, and value creation. They are all positioned as efforts that will make procurement ‘strategic’ (another term that would benefit from a bit more definition). But what do they really mean? How do we know if we have achieved them? What are the outcomes supposed to be? Despite how it may sound, supply market intelligence does not have to be another confusing initiative like all of the others – rolled out to great acclaim, impossible to develop execution plans for, and then quietly abandoned without either results or improvement. In this webinar, Kelly Barner, the Editor of Buyers Meeting Point and co-author of Supply Market Intelligence for Procurement Professionals: Research, Process, and Resources, will present an action-oriented overview of supply market intelligence. Join us on April 27th

Admitámoslo, uno de los problemas más importantes que tienen las organizaciones en la actualidad es que los trabajadores no están comprometidos con la empresa.



Los datos son tozudos. En 2014, sólo el 13% de los trabajadores a nivel mundial se sentían comprometidos con su empresa y, sinceramente, no creo que los datos hayan mejorado en este año y medio que va desde la fecha del informe hasta hoy (fuente, Informe sobre el Estado del Entorno Laboral Global de Gallup).

Great to see this positive, upside benefits driven motivation to bring sustainability standards to the supply chain at a huge multi-national like United Technologies.

Tyler Blackburn's curator insight, May 6, 2:44 PM
Consumer push for sustainable companies reaches as far as the entire supply chain.

Since consumers are asking for sustainability from companies, they are now asking the same of their suppliers.

This is exactly how real change happens, from 1 consumer at a time, to 1 company at a time.

ideas + buildings | People and Perspectives at Perkins+Will

As Ontario’s new cap and trade legislation engages in public consultation, and with the recent announcement of up to $2 billion in the Canadian federal budget for “projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the environmental sustainability,” organizations are scrambling to determine their carbon emissions, and, more importantly, how they will reduce their associated impact. Under the new legislation, the emissions ceiling will be lowered over a set time period to reduce business’ footprint. Low hanging fruit measures such as lighting retrofits will likely not get an organization to the targets. Instead, organizations will need to tackle comprehensive initiatives that make deep carbon reductions. Often, these same organizations do not have the culture needed to implement a ‘comprehensive strategy’ for sustainability.

Developing and integrating sustainability practices into an organization can be a challenging task. Sustainability means shifting the way we do and think about things, therefore the implementation of sustainable strategies is really about change management. This means that the process of preparing and aligning an organization around any given sustainability change is as important as the new sustainability initiative itself.
