Next level Thinking
What does supply chain or supplier responsibility mean to you?
Here is what it means to me:
Based on my years of experience in business and in the supply chain world, I created an SRMM (you guessed it 'Supplier Responsibility Maturity Matrix'). I believe as your company matures, your bottom line will be positively impacted and if you are accountable for supplier selection, you might even sleep better at night.
Where are you on the maturity model matrix? I would like to hear from you. As you may have surmised from this high-level matrix, I strongly recommend supply chain responsibility programs include the following tenets:
· Ethics and governance
· Diversity and inclusion
· Supplier sustainability
