Each company has its own idea of what partnering means. This may be short term partnerships for specific projects or long term strategic partnership established with business critical or high value suppliers.
Here at Meercat Associates Limited we have a suggested framework which can be used in its entirety or customised to suit your own requirements.
When a company agrees to become a partner there must be a relationship of confidentiality and mutual benefit. It is important for each party to understand the culture of the other and be willing and able to add value to the relationship.
True partnerships are based upon sharing - this could mean the sharing of people, systems, processes or other resources to avoid duplication and waste, but it also means the sharing of pain and gain.
Meercat Associates Limited are here to assist you in setting up and maintaining robust and sustainable supply chain partnerships.
