Since sourcing is so important, Chipotle has a strong focus on SRM.
Chipotle is very strict with their suppliers and demands a lot from them in the following ways:
Examines producer's sustainability and long-term profitability at the first, second, and third-tier levels
Demand transparency
Try to develop efficient relationships
Summary of Problems
1. Managing relationships with suppliers
2. Board of Directors have too much control
3. Too centralized decision making
4. Not as responsive to customer’s needs based on geographic differences
Summary of Recommendations
Final Thoughts
Lewin’s 3 steps for change model
Changes Made:
1. Create two liason roles to add 2 levels to hierarchical structure.
Reward: outside consultants will survey the suppliers quarterly in order to receive feedback about the liason role integration. By receiving this feedback evaluation can be made and when improvement across these areas are made, set bonuses will be given to the liason roles. By fueling the bonuses from the perspective of the suppliers this will in turn motivate the liason role to positively maintain the supplier relationship.
