I still get production emails from XXXX company. Lately, the emails have been far less compliance-oriented and more conciliatory. This last one was more like begging the suppliers to help them comply with the new overseas regulations. I must say had they treated their suppliers better. They would not be in this position. I did tell them on a different issue of how important it is to have a partner-oriented supplier relationship and not a compliance relationship. Now the chickens are coming home to roost.
Lead your supply chain. Don't manage it.
