92nd Annual International Conference Proceedings - 2007 - Las Vegas, NV
Supply disruptions consume much more than hard-won cost reductions – they threaten quarterly earnings, customer loyalty, and even a company's overall brand in the market. Today's lean and highly outsourced supply chains leave procurement teams with little visibility to anticipate and react to risk. This session describes the safeguards that leading organizations are putting in place – from establishing a dashboard of vulnerability and criticality, to continuous supplier monitoring, to assessments and interventions – even as the outsourcing trend continues.
