Abstract

Strategic supplier alliances are like a living entity. They begin with much planning and preparation but, like anything that has a natural life cycle, there will be times when an alliance must come to an end. This session will highlight reasons why an alliance relationship might end, factors to consider in determining whether the alliance needs to be modified or discontinued, a checklist of activities prior to terminating the alliance and methods to transition to another alliance partner.
