There are huge commercial and business advantages to adopting a collaborative approach to key strategic suppliers. Creating a system that will maintain and develop critical supplier relationships is not straightforward. Often what passes for Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) is a patchwork of inconsistent initiatives, unduly dependent on individual managers. Bareki’s SRM methodology is proven across sectors and tailored to your individual requirements and priorities.
We provide support to organisations where:
- There is no formal SRM process, or several different approaches and processes across the business
- Supplier managers are confused about the process and its objectives, and lack the required skills and tools
- Key suppliers appear to be underperforming, but there is no consistent way of monitoring or resolving the issues
- Strategic supplier relationships have deteriorated back into a transactional and adversarial mode Strategic suppliers find the relationship difficult or frustrating
How we work
Our starting point is supplier segmentation. We often find that any existing categorisation of strategic suppliers is out of date and no longer reflects business realities.
