Supplier diversity leaders are responsible for improving the quantity, quality, efficiency, and capacity of their DBE vendors. While developing DBE supplier development programs is an important part of this process, it is difficult to measure program effectiveness without DBE evaluation tools that show progress for each vendor and the program overall.
But how do you measure DBE supplier strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for growth? And more importantly, how do you measure their progress over time? Are they improving? How do you know? What criteria are you using?
Based on decades of experience, Bellewether Ltd. has developed assessment tools for supplier diversity managers and leaders to evaluate their current operations and the progress of their suppliers. These assessment tools are separate from any DBE supplier development programming and can be used to evaluate all suppliers.
