Recovery or Double Dip Recession?

While some economists say that we’ve survived the worst of the recent economic downturn, others are warning that a second, larger dip is on the horizon. Regardless of what the next 6 to 12 months bring, companies need to take action now to ensure they are prepared for whatever is thrown at them. They can start by looking at their supply chain.

Savvy procurement organizations are moving ahead on three main strategies to protect their supply chain in case of a second dip and to ramp up for the recovery:

  1. Forward buy – Evaluate what each supplier is responsible for delivering and make a decision as to whether you need to stock up on any of the parts/services now.

  2. Negotiate prices – Now is the time to re-evaluate supplier contracts and lock in prices while demand is lower. Once demand rises you can expect prices on goods to do the same.

  3. Anticipate a lag between supply and demand – Just as many companies fail during a recovery as they do in a recession. Companies scale back and operate lean supply chains making it challenging to ramp up when demand spikes. Take steps to ensure you and your suppliers aren’t caught off-guard.
