If you’re a customer looking for an ideal supplier to remove pain and add value here is how you can use your imagination to start this process…
Dream up what your ideal supply partner would look like if you were to be granted that wish. Write down precisely ever little detail on paper ideally so you can look at it objectively as you start to make that supplier a reality.
It’s vital they have the all the right people, departments, technology in place already and with the capability to fulfil any gaps to get your ideal scene. I have outlined some broad areas as headings for you to start with and you can use your imagination to come up with your own specific needs and wants.
- Owners goals and purposes
- Leadership and management team
- Track record of the company
- Current customer profiles and how long are they doing business with the supplier
- Management structure across all aspects of the business
- Company values, culture
- Technology and speed of service
- Quality assurance
- After service support
- Ability to meet delivery dates
- Ability to scale
- Processes and systems to control the products and services
- Financial stability and ability to invest in expansion
- Supplying customers locally or Internationally
- Sub supply chains and supply chain management
- Attention to detail in every department.
- Willingness to learn and grow
- Tone of the company overall – are they bored, interested, enthusiastic etc…
In the past, most of us have been let down by quality or delivery and in the majority of cases it was because one or a few of the above points were under par or non-existent.
