In today’s highly uncertain, competitive and digital environment, we understand that only businesses that are responsive, adaptable and agile will thrive – but what is the procurement organizations role in enabling this? Is it to stay laser focused on delivering savings and controlling spend or is it much more? Hear directly from former CPO of Cushman & Wakefield, Joanna Martinez on this very topic. Agility comes in many shapes and sizes, from market intel and access to data to customer service and supplier relationships.

Joanna shares her views on why it’s time for procurement to go from the department of cost-cutting to the enabler of agility.

The Learning Objectives for this Event are:

  • What agility means in the context of procurement and why it matters
  • Why information and collaboration are key to enabling agility
  • How disruptive technologies help procurement create value for the business
  • Why traditional procurement approaches need to be revisited

Many Supply Management organizations have capitalized on trends such as outsourcing and globalization to optimize supply chain costs and drive profitability by sourcing from the best value suppliers across the globe. However, many are now also realizing that their increasingly global and complex supply chains have the potential to dramatically increase their exposure to risk – risk due to potential supply chain disruptions, regulatory compliance, data privacy, or even their very brand identity and reputation.

This webinar will focus on the best practices that market leading organizations are implementing now, as they move into the new SRM – Supplier Risk Management.

The key learning areas of the webinar will focus on:

  • Defining Supplier Risk for Procurement and Establishing a Risk Management Program
  • On-Boarding Right the First Time – Preventative Risk Management
  • Segmenting and Prioritizing Suppliers – Screening for Risk
  • Performing Supplier Risk Assessments – and Taking Action
  • Measuring Value – What are the Key Metrics and ROI Drivers?
  • Proactively Monitoring and Mitigating Potential Risks
