Webinar: Next Generation Supplier Management

webinar description

“SRM” has been a hot topic for some years now, but technology is changing supplier management just as it is other areas of the procurement lifecycle. We will look at the latest thinking in the whole area of supplier management – so not just the “SRM” around the most critical suppliers, but the wider picture.

That will include a focus on supplier performance management, including new ideas that mimic consumer websites such as TripAdvisor. Collaboration and innovation are key areas of focus as well.

Organisations are also much more aware of reputational risk that arises from their supply base. We will take a look at the major topics here, from fraud to CSR issues. Finally, we will provide an overview of the latest thinking on “the circular economy” and what that means in the context of supplier management – this is a topic that we will hear much more about in the years to come.

Join Peter Smith, Managing Director of Spend Matters UK and ex-CIPS president, for either of our two global webinars on 5 October 2016, with one suitable for Europe, the Middle East & Africa at 10 am GMT and the other suitable for the Americas at 11 am EST.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Get an overview of “supplier management”

  • See how the focus is changing – are TripAdvisor and Facebook the models for “SRM” of the future?

  • Protect against reputational risk – fraud, CSR and the circular economy
