"Team work makes the dream work."

Whether the economy is expanding or contracting, a major component to supply chain success is collaboration. Having a stronger understanding of your supply base is just one way to optimize efficiencies and reduce costs when budgets are tight. If you're seeking opportunities for sales growth, improved processes, or innovations within your supply chain, dialogue with your key suppliers is a great place to start. Access to the data of your suppliers and partners can provide valuable insight and with constant enhancements in technology, it's now easier than ever to exchange this information. Consider even how you manage risks. Sure,you (or, at least you should) have a risk mitigation plan for risks associated with your internal operations. However, do you have an action plan for the risks facing your supply base that may ultimately impact your supply chain operations? Rather than wait for an unanticipated disaster to strike, proactively work with your suppliers to identify their risks and potential impact on your organization. This collaboration can help minimize disruption.
