From Planning to Execution: Embedding Enterprise Risk Management into Your Supply Chain
In today’s world of heightened risk, procurement organizations are being tasked with managing much more than contracts and supplier performance.

This has become a top priority in the boardroom.

Use Metrics to Create a Compelling Narrative About Supply Management
How do your internal business partners and your company’s C-suite view your supply management group? As a tactical function? Or, do they see you as a respected profession that creates value and drives solutions? Too many supply management leaders are perceived as being concerned only with cost savings, when they have a powerful story to tell about how they deliver value to the organization. With the use of unbiased metrics, you can create a new narrative that illustrates supply management’s critical role in the organization. Don’t assume others know! Use credible benchmarks to create a compelling narrative about the strategic importance of supply management.

Presented by Deborah K. Stanton, Executive Managing Director, CAPS Research and former Chief Procurement Officer, at MasterCard, and Geoff Zwemke, Director of Benchmarking, CAPS Research
