Suppliers’ competitiveness in today’s highly volatile global supply chains demands performance risk mitigation, quality assurance and performance maturity. Whatever success a supplier may have had yesterday is no guarantee of competitiveness tomorrow without closing performance and operational maturity gaps and development a strategy for sustained supply chain engagement and continuous improvement.

To meet these demands, the Diverse Manufacturing Supply Chain Alliance (DMSCA) is a not-for-profit membership organization where Customers and Diverse Small and Mid Size Manufacturing and Logistics Suppliers engage in a Community of Practice centered on a supplier development and supply chain performance alignment system called the Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP). With input from Corporate Member’s CPO/Buying Organizations, the major education and training pillars of the CMP include Supplier Performance Benchmarking Preparedness; Supplier Performance Benchmarking and Strategy Development; Supplier Supply Chain Strategy Analysis and Deployment; and Supplier Development, Expansion and Continuous Improvement.

DMSCA is partnered in this effort with the Supply Chain Council (SCC); the Institute of Supply Management (ISM); the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME); and the National Sustainability Coalition (NSC).
