IF has been successfully supporting Governments both UK and abroad, NGOs, OEMs and Tier one organisations with the provision of supplier development programmes many years.
There can be many reasons why a supplier development programme is required, such as solving issues with a “problem” supplier(s) to the provision of government funded programmes to improve entire supply chains and allow organisations to compete in international market. Increased competitiveness of the supply chain in turn provides great benefit to the local economy.
IF works with organisations to develop and build bespoke programmes, based on tried and tested methods and techniques. Typically, programmes consist of an initial assessment phase, followed by a period of improvement which can consist of consulting, coaching, mentoring and training. Following improvement activities, a further assessment can be provided to analysis of the benefits realised. At which point, a further period of improvement can be undertaken or the supplier can leave the programme.
If you require an outsourced supplier assessment and/or development programme, IF is the perfect partner.
Industry Forum helps major global manufacturers understand, optimise and improve both manufacturing capability and business performance. Over 250 organisations in 30 countries trust Industry Forum to deliver and maintain sustainable improvement.
