The Supply Chain Imperative
How to Ensure Ethical Behavior in Your Global Suppliers
Like most companies, yours is probably well aware of the need to clarify and reaffirm standards of ethical behavior, honest business practices, and organizational integrity. In the wake of public skepticism over numerous corporate scandals, companies in every industry are showing an admirable commitment to doing the right thing.
But in an increasingly global business landscape, your business faces a whole new set of challenges that can be summarized in one question: Are our suppliers doing the right thing, too? You might not think that the behavior of another organization half a world away is your responsibility, but when your name is on the product, you'd better believe that demanding good supplier practices is in your business's best interest.
The Supply Chain Imperative will help your company overcome the multiple hurdles to establishing, monitoring, and enforcing consistent, ethical policies across your entire global supply chain. This timely book addresses crucial strategic questions including:
- How does globalization change our supplier relationships?
- Who is responsible for what in the chain, and how do you communicate that responsibility?
- How do I create and present the business case for the new supply chain ethics?
- How do we reconcile diverse and potentially conflicting legal requirements and cultures?
- How do we create and maintain accurate and verifiable performance metrics ?
- How do we create chain-wide understanding and buy-in of new standards?
- How do we handle compliance problems?
The Supply Chain Imperative also offers practical solutions for more accurate accounting and financial reporting, plus valuable questionnaires, checklists, self-assessment exercises, examples, and a full case study.
Good ethics make for good business in the long run. The "new way" in supply chain management is focused on the same goals as always-profit and growth. But through a lens of integrity, social conscience, and global responsibility, that focus is now doubly sharp.
