According to the researchers, the supply chain management of strategic manner is placing more emphasis on the close affiliation and strengthened bond of the buyer and supplier in order to avail the benefits that can be derived from this association. The buyers are growingly developing closer links with the strategic suppliers of the organization (Habib et al., 2015). It is argued by the researchers that the management of organizations is gradually recognizing the importance of establishing a strong buyer-supplier power and the buyer-supplier exchange outcomes as these practices have provided with the defined and advantageous results.
The academic scholars and researchers suggest that the significance of the supportive relations with the strategic supplier is surfacing as increasing number of organizations develop strategic supplier partnerships. Once this is performed, the organizations immediately attains a competitive edge in the operating markets (Hingley et al., 2015). The researchers indicated that in order to develop large range of relationships with the strategic suppliers, it is important that the buyers not only realize but also appreciate the key strengths of the other suppliers. One of the factors that in particular make the buyer-supplier power important to the organizational management is that the organizational success becomes a dependent variable from the viewpoint of strategic supply chain management. It is implied by the researchers that the effective management of the buyer-supplier power and subsequent exchanges can not only enable the value creation but also it can result in enhancing the performance of organization.
