What is the value of doing big business with diverse business ? Corporations, large and small alike, frequently struggle with articulating a clear value proposition for implementing a focus on the utilization of diverse businesses in their supply chain. I have discussed this in previous article including: “The Three C’s of Supplier Diversity” and “Making an Effective Business Case for Minority Supplier Development”.
My good friend and colleague Franz Tiffeau, Senior Manager of Supply Chain Diversity at Office Depot, has shared some GREAT additional guidance on this important topic.
He recently sat down with the folks of the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) to record a podcast in which he explains the value that diverse suppliers can bring to the supply chain.
