Since the pandemic hit, procurement teams in New Zealand and Australia, at the very tip of the global supply chain, have been quickly refocussed on supply side RISK.
Many have been asked to rebalance the cost v risk equation on vital supply lines and explore strategies that both mitigate security of supply and optimise cost.
In two short PASA CONNECT sessions, procurement & supply expert Craig Johnstone will lead the group through the details of both supplier segmentation & inbound supply chain risk assessment process.
Segmenting your suppliers in 4 steps - As the events of 2020 have demonstrated, developing and leveraging close working relationships with key suppliers is both now a necessity and a point of competitive advantage for organisations.
In this PASA Connect roundtable discussion, learn how to facilitate discussions with your key stakeholders to segment your organisation's suppliers in 4 steps. Understand what the resulting profiles mean from a contract and relationship management perspective and appreciate why such an approach should be done early in the Category Management lifecycle.
