Connecting Northwest Arkansas presents:
The Power of Partnership – a special issue commemorating Walmart’s 50th anniversary and the company’s unique approach to partnership. The primary focus of this issue will be how the concept of partnership has evolved, created new opportunities and going forward is being applied more broadly to an expanding group of stakeholders to provide a foundation for Walmart’s continued growth aspirations.
This issue will feature:
Profiles of excellence – leading supplier company executives share their views on partnership, what it is, how it has changed and what it will look like in the future.
Partnership’s new paradigm. How collaboration became the new normal in retail and what’s next in terms of best practices.
The secret ingredient – The role of service providers in facilitating the partnership process and future progress.
Beyond collaboration: how Walmart is taking the concept of supplier partnership to new levels with an expanding group of stakeholders.
The merchants’ view – Walmart’s perspective on partnership and the evolution of trading partner collaboration.
Walmart’s unique approach to supplier partnership helped the company get where it is today, but Sam Walton knew that enduring success in retail came only to those who consistently moved forward. It was a belief he instilled in successive generations of leaders and it also rubbed off on suppliers who worked with the company. That’s why in commemorating Walmart’s 50th anniversary we are looking forward through a historical lens that recognizes the increasingly important role partnership will play in the future.
