Build A Better Supply Chain – Session Materials

Oct 6, 2022 8:00 – 9:00 AM PST

The last 2 years have been profoundly challenging for most Supply Chain Teams. Supply Chain teams are increasingly on the frontline to expand/improve the supply base, to improve supplier readiness, to ensure suppliers are delivering and performing at a high level, and to reduce supply chain cost.

Our work with leading supply chains has highlighted a critical need for “Holistic Strategy” to Build a Better Supply Base. The result of this strategy, when implemented effectively, are Suppliers that can work cooperatively, perform at a high level, and prioritize your organization as a customer. In short, A Better Supply Chain.
