By Veronica H. Villena, Thomas Choi, and Elena Revilla · November 1, 2015
It is all too easy for relationships between companies and their suppliers to become too chummy and for essential checks and balances to get less attention than they require. Often, the longer and deeper the relationship, the cozier it can be—and thus at much greater risk of underperformance. Here’s how to identify and guard against those risks.
By John W. Henke, Jr., Thomas T. Stallkamp, and Sengun Yeniyurt · May 1, 2014
Most companies are missing out on an important opportunity for improved profitability simply because they are unaware of the profit contribution their suppliers can bring.

The practice can help create competitive advantage by enabling those lowcost suppliers to eventually perform at worldclass levels. Here is what it takes to build a highly effective supplier development program.
By Robert Handfield · November 1, 2010
Supply market intelligence (SMI) is a proven approach to reducing risk and gaining a competitive advantage. It begins with the collection and analysis of market data—but doesn’t stop there. The leaders excel at engaging key stakeholders in the SMI process and then disseminating the information in a way that leads to better business decisions. It’s a new way of thinking that can pay big benefits.
