Breakout 12: Building a Resilient Supply Chain through Effective Contracting and Supply Base Management

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 15:30

The keys to building an effective supply chain is to establish resiliency and mitigations in the supplier negotiations and contracting phase of your supplier relationships. This mitigates a number of disruptions while establishing backup options. Beyond that, it is critical to establish risk profiles across the supply chain along with early warning triggers to help resolve escalating risks before they become business issues. In this session we will cover how you can use your Contract Management system to build resiliency in the Supply Chain.

You will learn:

  • How to understand what Supply Chain resiliency means for your business
  • How to use effective contracting strategies & processes to continuously identify & remediate supply chain risks
  • How to use contract-centric supplier performance governance to have adequate coverage for the unforeseen and unforeseeable in your supply base
