Offering Operator Collaboration Model Training in 2015
Posted by IFMA December 02, 2014
The Operator/Manufacturer Collaboration Model (OCM) committee is creating a framework to better classify, understand and communicate the value of each chain operator-supplier relationship. Over the past twelve months, more than 30 leading chains and IFMA members, in conjunction with The Partnering Group (TPG), have worked to develop a best practice model.
Following the 2015 Chain Operators Exchange (COEX) in March, IFMA will introduce a new training program for industry-wide adoption of the Operator/Manufacturer Collaboration Model.
This slideshare provides the outline of the process that the committee has developed. Beginning in January 2015, we will release installments of the OCM process. Stay tuned for more information on this and the OCM training,, scheduled for the first week of April 2015, by visiting IFMAWORLD.com.
