Moving on from the procurement strategy next comes the supplier management.

This is where you develop, with your chosen suppliers, a joint partnership to support your business ensuring at every stage that both parties are happy and profitable.

Remember they are in business too, so you need to ensure that they are making a margin or they won't be trading long enough to build a successful relationship and maintain reliable supplies for your business.

Many people believe that good procurement and supplier management is about "screwing them down to the last penny" or "playing hard ball by beating them up to keep them on their toes". I seen the approach fail at every level of business involving anything from a few quid to millions of pounds.
