Weak sales position in Asia and South America
Not considering some dimensions in the supplier evaluation system
Complexity of products
Industry unable to handle requirments
Ineffective use of their resources and supplier availabilities
Uneven distribution of their sales volume
Suppose you were John Summers and you had prepared a list of suggested improvements for discussion at the Procurement Directors Board meeting. Discussion of other agenda items at the meeting however took longer than expected, with the result that John now has only 10 minutes (and not 30 minutes) to present his ideas. Given this time constraint, what three steps would you prioritise for discussions at the meeting?
Improving Sales position in Asia and South America:
Organise company visits to the suppliers headquarters and manufacturing plants
Make new supplier evaluation criteria’s for current and potential suppliers
Current framework outdated- Aggregated performance
Compare on last work with similarities
Criteria for Ethics
Country sourcing quotas
Local focal points- E-procurement, Supplier relationships, Horizontal integration
