An important aspect of implementing supply chain management is the formation of appropriate linkages between members of the supply chain. While practitioners and academics have championed the value of partnerships for this purpose, the challenge is to find effective methods for developing the appropriate type of relationship.

Implementation issues are documented and direction is provided for managers interested in using this tool for tailoring key relationships.
