Let's assume that as a salesperson for a logistics management company, you are a key channel manager and work with
a number of supply chain vendors to help make sure your client, Home Depot, gets excellent value. While working closely with one channel member, Effective Inventory Management, Inc., you learned exactly how it completes an extensive inventory situation analysis. Given your newfound knowledge, should you suggest to your firm that it do the inventory situation analysis itself, thus negating the need to work with Effective Inventory Management, Inc. entirely? Basically, you would be using knowledge that you gained through your observations of Effective Inventory Management, Inc. You did not sign a nondisclosure agreement with that firm.
