Simplify the Complexity
Once you have understood how supply chains work, and how big customers think, the next step is to work on your ‘prequalification’ requirements.
– 50% of small business owners tell us that they have trouble “Getting all the stuff in place”.
– 43% tell us that “Finding the time and money to meet all the requirements” is a problem.
This quote from the Queensland Government’s ‘Preparing your business for major projects’ publication points out the minimum requirements.
“As a minimum, you must offer competitive pricing, quality and on-time delivery when supplying to a major project.
You have the best chance of entering and gaining long-term access to major project supply chains if you:
•demonstrate how your service or product adds value to the project and supports the project’s risk management strategy
•use an established business system
•have experience in responding to unexpected issues
•use innovation to improve the efficiency of the project supply chain
network to find and create opportunities to add value to the supply chain.”
Mining For Business starts with helping business owners to understand their current state of readiness, with a Supply Chain Ready Checklist.
