CHAPTER ONE 1.0 Introduction This chapter summaries the statement of the problem, purpose of the study, research questions, scope and significance of the study. 1.1 Background to the study According to Wells 2006, supplier consists of a range of activities integrated into a relatively seamless whole to enhance better quality. He further argues that supplier development refers to competitive tendering and it involves development of suppliers who are capable of achieving purchasing objective of quality. Malcolm 1997 argues that supplier development involves the rein-enforcement of innovative behavior to improve quality and to produce new products that can be achieved through close cooperation and intensive interaction between supplier developments. Some of the imp011ant fundamental decisions that purchasing and supply management can make concerns the development and management of the suppliers. Some argue that an organization is only as good as its source of supply (Benald, Rajagopal, 1993) Hann, Kim & Watts 1990 support this notion by arguing that without supplier development a fi1m's ability to compete effectively in the market can be hampered significantly. One important decision relating to quality in an organization is development of suppliers that will produce better quality products/services of an organization (Copper, Lambert & Pagh 1997).
