SRM COI - Utilizing Supplier Relationship Management to Drive Innovation With Suppliers - Recording

Views: 803 Published: 13 Apr 2010 Average Rating: unrated Print

Increasingly, leading companies view suppliers as more than simple vendors of goods and services. Instead, they are looking at suppliers - their expertise, assets, and market knowledge - as a significant source of innovation. But tapping into the innovation potential of suppliers is not simple. It requires significant changes to internal process and traditional ways of working with suppliers. During this SRM Community of Interest call, Katherine Kawamoto and Jonathan Hughes (Sourcing & Supplier Management Practice Leader from Vantage Partners) will discuss the opportunity to leverage suppliers as innovation partners, common pitfalls and risks that need to be overcome, and how to use supplier relationship management strategies and practices to maximize collaborative innovation with suppliers.
