today is the last day before submit CBE PMA but I'm still working on it. Fortunately, it's almost finished. i've some things in my mind about partnership. From my short-time working experience, i've never experience anything about partnership even though we had partners. in my opinion, partnership is too ideal. it's very difficult to influence supplier to become partner because most of them were looking for short-term benefits from buyers. it's almost impossible for both small firms and small suppliers. Moreover, i think it's costly and time consumes process. if small companies try to develop partnership, i think their company is gonna go to bankrupt before achieve partnership except they develop partnership in the area that does not affect the finance. Therefor, I personally think that partnership is suitable for the large or medium company not small company and vision of leader is very very importance.
