A man is known by the company he keeps goes to the age-old adage. True to this adage, it can be said that a company is known by the vendors it keeps. In today’s competitive environment, progressive firms must be able to produce quality products at reasonable prices. Product quality is a direct result of the production workforce and suppliers. Buying organisations can no longer afford to maintain a large supplier base. There is a clear shift from a onetime operational relationship to a long-term strategic relationship. This course is designed so that participants get insight on the strategic aspects of buyer-supplier relationships.
