The Supply Chain is as strong as its weakest link.
External resourced management is a task for talents. Audits are among the most important tools used to evaluate suppliers but many companies face challenges in having the time to make them. While audits provide valuable information about supplier processes, strengths and weaknesses, we believe that there´s more to the equation. Short or even deep digging visits alone cannot truly reveal the risks and possibilities collaboration can have.
Communication culture, especially when things don´t go smoothly, is one of the hardest things to evaluate beforehand. Our aim is to understand our suppliers beyond the balance sheets, to promote open communication culture and to help our suppliers reach their true potential.
"Agile is about people – we do not purchase a ‘resource’; we invite people to collaborate with us" Mirko Kleiner, 2018, WAI.O.BLUE -company
