Sip and SolveTM

Solving business challenges in a coffee break


Minimizing supplier disruption in your supply chain

During this session Li Mao from our product management team, and Tom Hayes from Solutions Consulting present a real world example of failure in the supplier risk assessment process, and how it caused significant disruption for a major healthcare provider.

We talk through how procurement professionals can:

  • Learn from this example and apply simple checks as part of their on-going process.
  • Avoid common pitfalls many organizations encounter.
  • Collaborate with their compliance peers to gain a big picture view of potential disruption risks.
