在过去，Aldi展示了一个非常强大的供应链关系。“它在行业从业者中有很强的声誉，因为它对供应链的健壮性很好。”它的数量有限，意味着它经常被认为是“一流的”，而不是高科技，它是难以置信的精益，每一个产品都是最畅销的和最好的货架上的可用性”(Fmcg,2016,para)。5)然而，在当前的更多情况下，产品召回表明，供应链中的某些方面需要更多的改进。这是一个特定环境的问题。在收购过程中，也许最重要的活动就是从众多潜在供应商中挑选出最好的供应商。购买过程是复杂的，因为在做出这样的决定时，必须考虑到不同的参与者。”(股票&兰伯特，1983，第281页)。现在，Aldi在其最近的扩张的背景下，将扩大到包括更多的供应商。因此，供应商收购过程必须由阿尔迪精心管理。在其管理结构中，必须从与供应商等战略合作伙伴合作的管理人员那里获得输入。经理的投入将有助于实现与现有供应商的错误或问题。这些问题可以在收购新供应商时避免。“首席执行官和高级管理团队的特征与组织绩效相互作用，影响战略变革”(Boeker,1997,p . 152)。经理们的输入将由高层主管讨论，以实现对Aldi的正确更改。
In the past, Aldi demonstrates a very strong supply chain relationship. “It has a strong reputation amongst industry practitioners for the robustness of its supply chain. Its limited number of lines means that it is often judged as ‘best-in-class’ and whilst it is not high tech, it is incredibly lean, with every product a best seller and great on-shelf availability” (Fmcg, 2016, para. 5). However, in more current times there have been product recalls suggesting that there are some aspects in its supply chain that needs more improvement. This is an issue of the specific environment. “In the acquisition process, perhaps the most important activity is selecting the best supplier from among a number of potential vendors. The buying process is complex because various actors must be considered when making such a decision” (Stock & Lambert, 1983, p. 281). Now Aldi’s in the context of its more recent expansions, which would have been expanded to include more suppliers. So, supplier acquisition process would have to be carefully managed by Aldi’s. In its management structure, input must be taken from those managers that work with the strategic partners like suppliers. The manager’s input would help in realizing mistakes or issues with existing suppliers. And these issues could be avoided in the acquisition of the newer suppliers. “Chief executive and top management team characteristics interact with organizational performance to influence strategic change” (Boeker, 1997, p. 152). The managers input will be discussed by top level executives to implement the right change for Aldi’s.
