CMMI Suppliers

CMMI Supplier Management is an integrated set of best practices that improves performance and key capabilities for organizations that acquire components, goods, or services from another company.

Organizations experiencing growth are relying more on external suppliers to provide products and services that help them meet their business objectives. However, if organizations disengage after a supplier is hired, they increase risk across the entire supply chain – expectations are misunderstood, changes in requirements or technology cause delays, capacity and resource shortages arise, and customer needs are not met.

CMMI Supplier Management is an integrated set of best practices that improves an organization’s capability to identify and manage suppliers and vendors in a way that maximizes supply chain efficiency and reduces risk.‚Äč
