Leveraging Supply Market Intelligence for Procurement Professionals

One of a supply manager's often repeated requests is, “Where can I find information on suppliers?” Obtaining suitable market intelligence are issues that confront supply managers daily in their efforts to find, qualify, and use appropriate sources of supply. And we should never discount the important role that information plays within the risk management domain. The answer to this seemingly simple request for information has many aspects. First, supply organizations need to identify what potential suppliers exist for a particular commodity and where they are located. Next, they must determine which suppliers are capable of providing the required goods and at what total landed cost. Then, it is necessary to narrow the supplier pool, including through a structured evaluation and selection process to arrive at a smaller set of supplier candidates. And, of course, a rigorous evaluation must occur to identify the final supplier. These factors, while complex enough on their own, are further complicated when suppliers are located in foreign countries. This process requires supply managers to obtain, analyse, and use supply market intelligence (SMI). SMI exists in many forms and places; no single source of intelligence is available. This course approaches the subject of supply market intelligence by first defining the concept and relating it to the development of supply strategies. Next, we present the uses, levels, and categories of supply market intelligence. Finally, many different sources of SMI are identified.

Strategic Sourcing and Supplier Management

Procurement and supply management professionals recognize the need to produce dramatic results in an increasingly complex business environment. This is especially true in these challenging economic times, and necessitates a truly STRATEGIC approach to what was traditionally a transactional procurement function. Truly progressive organizations worldwide have been able to transition from a transactional role to become a strategic sourcing instrument of the organization, which reduces costs, while increasing both efficiency and effectiveness. Such a strategic transition must concurrently address the critical aspects of supplier management. Progressive organizations must therefore establish the strategic capabilities created by both strategic sourcing and active management of supplier risk to assure an optimized supply chain.
