Defining & Elevating Vendor Value

Presented by: Susan DaCosta, Vice President Supplier Management, Fidelity Investments

Defining & Elevating Vendor Value
Fidelity has designed and implemented a vendor management tool – Vendor Value - to provide a single, comprehensive, actionable view of their most significant vendors. The framework makes the overall vendor relationship tangible so that they can track, target, and increase the value delivered by their vendors.

There are 11 components measured monthly which incorporate four dimensions of the relationship; financial value, vendor risk, vendor performance, and strategic alignment. The tool is used to develop vendor management routines and to act on the results.
Join us for this valuable discussion and leave this one-hour meeting with immediately implementable ideas and strategies to improve vendor value for your organization.

What is a Town Hall Teleconference?

A Town Hall is a lively discussion by way of conference call with a limited number of buy-side SIG members. These open-mic teleconferences offer a secure environment to benchmark with peers and ask candid questions related to the event topic. Open to SIG buy-side members on a first-come first-serve basis, these teleconferences are very interactive and packed with insightful concepts and immediately implementable ideas.We encourage you to discuss and share openly. The success of these calls is directly correlated to the interactivity of those participating.
