Supplier Management

Our global studies on leading supplier relationship management (SRM) practice have revealed that many organisations still lack a strong foundation upon which to build their SRM programme.

Such a foundation will incorporate three key elements; contract lifecycle management, supply chain risk management and supplier performance management (SPM).

The six pillars, which we use as a framework for our SRM programmes, are: business drivers and value; stakeholder engagement; governance and process; people and skills; information and technology; and relationship development and culture. Our research has shown that in order to have a strong SRM programme, organisations need to be strong on all six of the SRM pillars.
